This paper presents the development of software for virtually teaching of medical laboratory skills based on instructional model. This initial study focuses on the assessment models developed by Borg and Gall; Dick, Carey, and Carey. The sample of this study is 887 students of the 2007 to 2011 academic year. The surveys were conducted by requiring all participants to complete the questionnaire that has been prepared. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics. The findings of this survey are: (1) From 34 medical skills, hematology laboratory skills is the most difficult (19,73%), (2) Twenty-seven medical skills are indicated as moderate skills to learn (0.11-17.25%) (3) Six skills which include glucometer, catheter, Ear-Nose-Throat examination, Visus examination and Thyroid examination are categorized as simple skills to learn. Based on the findings, a software application for virtual teaching of hematology laboratory skills for medical students is developed.
