Abstract: Objective To explore the teaching effect of mind mapping in implementing the teaching concept of " student-centered learning (SCL)".Methods One hundred and eighteen undergraduates of four-year curriculum in Nursing School, Peking Union Medical College enrolled in 2019 were selected as objects. Before the learning of the human parasitology, the students were investigated on the "students' autonomous learning situation"; then they were guided to make up a mind map of what they need to learn in the course of human parasitology; and the effect of mind mapping were evaluated at the end of the course. Results The teaching method that guides students to make up a mind map can effectively stimulate students' enthusiasm for learning, significantly improve students' sense of self-confidence, promote students' deep understanding of what they have learned and the logic thinking of learning, thereby effectively improving students' autonomous learning capacity. Conclusions The application of mind mapping can effectively implement the "student-centered learning" concept.
