Following popular demand from our partner schools, The Medic Portal has created a unique Problem-Based Learning (PBL) Workshop to be delivered in-house in schools.
The workshop will provide a practical and engaging introduction to this unique style of learning used by many medical schools, which focuses on small group work, problem-solving and peer-to-peer teaching.
Our interactive two-hour workshop guides students through PBL, providing a task for them to complete in PBL style. Not only will this allow students to experience this style of learning first-hand, but will also enable them to develop key skills for medicine, including teamwork, problem-solving and communication skills.
Officially partnered with the Royal Society of Medicine, The Medic Portal engages with over 300, 000 aspiring medics every year and our courses are used by many schools and thousands of students around the world.
