    Different sites say different things and it's hard to decipher from the Sheffield website (although it doesn't mention pbl anywhere). Also what is integrated - is it just when you have earlier clinical contact or when u mix pbl with lectures? And what is Sheffield?

    So there is no pbl at all? Why do multiple sites such as the tsr wiki http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...ning_.28PBL.29 say that it is pbl?

    There are PBL parts to the course, as there will be at pretty much every Medical School in the country.
    Designed around common and important clinical conditions, this course is based on a patient-centred approach. It uses integrated learning and teaching that relates clinical medicine to the underlying medical sciences. You'll be developing your clinical competencies from the very start.

    Teaching includes clinical teaching on wards in hospitals, in clinics both in general practice and hospitals, lectures, seminars, tutorials, small group work, dissection, and personal development supported by experienced tutors. This helps ensure you will be well prepared to work in the NHS.

    Whilst it does have some vaguely PBL work called ILA's, it is mainly lectures. I would not consider it a PBL course. In an ILA you have a "patient" who describes his/her symptoms and you ask questions to for about an hour, you then research relevant clinical information relating to the case as well as pathology, physiology etc and then you have an hour small group work normally with an F1/2 where you discuss what you found. The next week you get a formative online assessment about the case, answer Q's and then get feedback in an hour session on the answers. There is one ILA every two weeks. This is really the only PBLish part, its like 80% lectures
