Description: To quote the authors:"Much has been written about the benefits and applications of Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) in the literatire. Curriculum developers increasingly consider PAL as a vehicle to help undergraduate healthcare students learn to leach; an outcome which had received more attention in the UK since the Genral MEdical Council stated in Tomorrow's Doctors that medical graduates must `Be able to demonstrate appropriate teaching skills'." This very practical paper is essential reading for all those about to implement PAL into their curriculum.
