MPAS 561 - Problem-Based Learning II


(1 hours) Prerequisites: Successful completion of Unit 2 of the didactic year. This is a 12-week course that meets twice a week and is designed in an open learning format to encourage small group and individual discovery.  It uses case presentations to engage students, stimulate inquiry, develop skills in hypothesis formulation, critical thinking and problem solving; while engaging in a peer learning team environment.  Students are presented with progressively disclosed medical case information and must work through the process of acquiring and distinguishing pertinent information, synthesizing clinical information in a variety of contextually significant dynamic patient scenarios, and create management plans. By design, the course will foster and develop collaborative learning, peer teaching, interpersonal communication, leadership skills, collaboration, and high level reasoning strategies.  This course will focus on topics related to cardiology, pulmonology and endocrinology. Note: This course cannot be challenged.
