Description Background: Basic medical sciences play fundamental role for the clinical practice of medical care. These are considered as the base for medicine that a sound knowledge in the field of basic sciences is indispensable for perceiving the pathophysiological processes of disease and accurate patients care. Therefore, the aim of this study was to sightsee the attitudes of medical students towards basic sciences in their preclinical years and the applicability of these courses to clinical practice and preference of future career choice.
Methods: A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted d among medical students in their clinical years at university of Gond.Pretested self-administered questionnairewas used to evaluate their opinions about basic sciences applicability to clinical practice and their choice of future specialty. Two hundred forty students (fourth year and interns) were participated. 
Results A total of 2404th yearand 6th year) medical students were participated in this study. Of these, (17.5%espondents were females. Fifty nine of respondents came fromurban area. The mean age of students was 22.7 years with a standard deviation of 1.44 years. Conclusion:Overall, the attitudes of students toward basic science subjects were positive.Majority of students felt that preclinical teaching is interesting and relevant for future clinical practice, yet recall, overburdens and clinical significance were suboptimal. Reviewing teaching methods with integration clinical fields, premature clinical experience showing relevance of basic sciences and assigning more teaching time exploiting clinicians should be well-planned.
