Transdisciplinary medical education: Lifeworld system thinking approach

Sep 03, 2017

The paradigm that make integration of curriculum and Problem based learning methodology possible is complexity system thinking paradigm which manifested as transdisciplinary approach. Hence speaking about integration as a ladder is not possible if we take into consideration that integration is synthetic thinking, which is grounded in a different ontology and epistemology from that of the analytical thinking. Consequently, we have two ladders to practice science, linear, analytical ladder which disintegrate the parts from the whole and second one is non-linear, lifeworld system thinking ladder which is a vertical experience, lived as a bird or helicopter view in which the whole seen in the parts.

Soft cadavers for the practice during clinical clerkships

Apr 21, 2016

Although simulation models have been widely used in several University hospitals, they are still not the same as real patients.
