The learning design is based on a specific problem-based
learning (PBL) approach suited to medical education. Central
to the design is a clinical reasoning model that scaffolds
student thinking about the role of the basic and clinical
sciences and evidence-based medicine in the diagnosis and
management of patient conditions.
The selection, structure and online presentation of the PBL
case resources are all specified by a clinical reasoning model.
The core set of learning resources have been specifically
designed to support both the face-to-face PBL tutorial sessions
and the integrated independent learning that flows from them
on a weekly basis.
