PBL: Teaching method at UK medical schools
Below is a listing of UK medical schools using the 'Problem-based learning' (PBL) teaching method.
Medical schools that use PBL have students learn about a subject through the experience of solving an open-ended problem found in trigger material. This process encourages medical students to develop skills used for their future practice.
As explained by the BMA overview of teaching methods at UK medical schools:
"PBL is a very patient-oriented approach and students can expect to see patients right from the beginning of their course. Students are given medical cases to resolve and learn from, guided by group work with a tutor as well as self-directed learning. Group work, on top of academic and clinical learning, helps students develop communication, teamwork and problem solving skills, personal responsibility and respect for others.... There is [typically a] blended approach with more interaction from facilitators and the provision of lectures and seminars etc. to support the individuals learning."
