This is an experience of applying certain degrees within the spectrum of the SPICES educational strategies in the advanced family medicine course at (R3) level of the Saudi family Medicine residency Program at Prince sultan Military Medical city (PSMMC), Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. We applied multiple interventions to approach elements of the “SPICES Model were used to” increase residents’ engagement, interest and their active participation within a previously perceived very tough course at the 3rd year residency level. We were also very keen to ensure matching of the course objectives and we used triangulation of data collection tools to oversee and attain that. 2 open Focus group discussion were conducted, 5 active relevant field visits were completed, and more than 150 feedback responses were received from 16 residents continuously all through the 8 weeks of the course with an 80% response rate and a satisfaction rate that exceeds 84% plus matching the ILOs that exceeds 80%. The voice of the trainers was not overlooked in our study. These interventions were the nucleus to Spread the culture of active learning between both the trainees and the trainers -in our institution- through many techniques and models like in SPICES strategies and many others.
