Summary: This paper reviews Problem Based Learning and its usefulness within undergraduate medical schools.
Description: Since the nineties many medical schools have written curricula based around problem based learning (PBL), encouraging students to develop their self-directed learning skills.
This review explores the underlying psychological theory, reviews its application to PBL based curricula, and critiques the literature with a view to answering two questions: Does PBL improve performance at medical school? Do PBL students make better doctors?
