Introduction: Gallery walk educational method is one of the team-based learning (TBL) methods as manages learning in small groups simultaneously teaching in a big class. In addition, Gallery walk method is one of the learner- centered methods (LCM) in which student plays the main role in learning and teacher supports the students as leader and supervisor. This study has been done with the aim of comparing two educational methods of Gallery walk and traditional in teaching pharmaceutics subject in pharmacy students.
Method: This quasi-experimental study, two group pretest-posttest design was conducted on 36 pharmacy students in pharmacy school of  Guilan  university of medical sciences in 2017. Students were assigned into two similar groups and randomly categorized in traditional (control) and Gallery walk (test) group. The influence of each educational method on students averages in post- tests considering the pre- test scores, were compared. Statistical analysis was performed by independent t- test and paired t- test using SPSS.
Results: Based on paired t test, there was a significant increase in student’s average scores in posttest in comparison with pretest (p<0.001) in both traditional and Gallery walk groups. However, the student’s average score in Gallery walk group was higher than traditional group, independent t test didn’t confirm the significant difference between traditional and Gallery walk groups in both pre and posttests (p>0.05).
Conclusion: Although statistical results did not confirm the significant effect of Gallery walk method on enhancing student's average score, this method is suggested to pharmacy school teachers due to more students’ participation in class.
