The Office of Medical Education is pleased to offer the following faculty training opportunity related to Problem-Based Learning (PBL). This opportunity is meant to serve as an introduction to PBL for new faculty, or as a “refresher course” for faculty members who may already have some experience using PBL. While there is no tuition fee for this workshop, advanced registration is required.

The second session of this two half-day workshop is an introduction to basic PBL tutor tasks, followed by hands-on practice, feedback and discussion. Participants will be given the opportunity to work with volunteer medical students as part of this session.
