Methods Eighty undergraduate interns majoring in traditional Chinese medicine were randomly divided into two groups with 40 students in each group. The experimental group adopted case teaching based on WeChat platform, while the control group adopted traditional teaching method. A comparative analysis was conducted between the two groups in students’ performances, self-evaluation on students’ comprehensive ability, and evaluation on students’ satisfaction towards teaching. Results After 1 month of practice, there was statistical significance between the experimental group and the control group in the performance assessment, including the theoretical test scores, operational test scores and case analysis scores (P＜0.01). In terms of self-evaluation of students’comprehensive ability, learning interest, communication ability, operational ability and comprehensive ability, there was statistical significance between the two groups (P＜0.01). The difference between the two groups was statistically significant in self-study ability, innovative ability, clinical thinking ability, literature retrieval ability, problem analysis ability (P＜0.05) . There was statistically significant difference in teaching satisfaction between the two groups (P＜0.05).Conclusions The case-based teaching aided by WeChat platform can enhance students’ comprehensive ability in Orthopedics department as well as the improvement of teaching quality.
