" Background: The School of Medicine of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile implemented diverse curricular changes addressing teaching challenges, including those related to generational diversity. Aim: To describe the implementation and results of curricular innovation in the Theoretic Gastroenterology Course (CTG) imparted between 2008 and 2020. Materials and Methods: The new teaching methods consisted in the implementation of interactive sessions, research conferences, video-recorded classes, and a learning management/assessment platform. An assessment of the learning model was implemented. As bibliographic material we incorporated self-instructive material and the CTG manual was re-edited. We registered the course syllabi, evaluation surveys, and final grades. Results: Students dedicated more time to attend the course, from 12.2 hours before to 18 hours after the implementation of video lessons (p < 0.05). They reported improvements in the areas ""Feedback"" (from 6.2 to 6.6, on a scale of 1 to 7; p < 0.05) and ""Grades"" (from 6.3 to 6.4; p < 0.05), after implementing a learning model assessment. The score for ""Information sources"" increased from 6.5 to 6.6 after the re-edition of the manual (p < 0.05). The final grades were similar or significantly higher than the average grades of all the theoretical courses imparted in the same period. Conclusions: The CTG underwent a series of curricular modifications, allowing for a rapid adaptation to extremely dynamic academic conditions."
