(PBL) Problem-Based Learning Pathway

PBL emphasizes student-centered, self-directed learning. Each group of eight students meets with a faculty facilitator three times per week.

  • Students work independently and in small groups developing learning issues and discussing new information relevant to actual patient cases.
  • Groups will request additional history and physical results, an EKG or an MRI as needed as students begin forming differential diagnoses.
  • Each basic medical science subject is studied, not in isolation, but integrated with other subjects in the context of clinical cases.
