What is Problem Based Learning (PBL)

The PBL process is an ordered, systematic instructional approach that models the process by which clinicians systematically approach real-life problems.

It provides a stimulus for self-directed learning following defined steps and it challenges students to work cooperatively.

It prepares students to think critically and analytically, and to find appropriate learning resources.
