Medical Problem-solving in Case Based Instruction

This was an interactive session that described the structured approach to problem-solving used in case-based instruction during preclinical years of the undergraduate medical education program. Presenters introduced the structured approach and discussed issues related to teaching and assessing medical problem-solving skills, with the focus on Case-Based Instruction (CBI) incorporated in the block curriculum. A lively question and answer discussion session followed the presentation, with a lengthy discussion on how we define problem-solving skills in a medical education curriculum.
