PBL’s are small group Problem Based Learning sessions that are included in your Friday didactic schedule. There are 13 PBL sessions. (Six taught by faculty and seven taught by teaching residents)
Students will be divided into four groups for the Teaching Resident PBL’s. You must come prepared for these sessions. 20% of your Clerkship grade depends upon your preparation and participation in the Resident PBL sessions. If you are shy, you will have to speak up if you expect to do well. If you must miss a session for any reason, you should turn in the answers to the questions to your teaching resident prior to the session. Attendance is mandatory (your absence must be approved and/or discussed with the surgery clerkship staff).
