The ecological method is introduced into the clinical practice teaching of medical students. The theoretical basis of ecological classroom teaching method in clinical practice teaching is studied, and the problems generated in the practical application of ecological classroom are discussed to promote the application of the teaching method in clinical practice teaching. Teachers and students form ecological consciousness, take the classroom as the interaction of various ecological factors in the ecosphere, achieve the overall ecological balance, and finally improve students' ability to use knowledge to solve practical clinical problems.
