    General Admissions & OTCAS PBL Curriculum

    Does anyone know of schools other than Sacred Heart that use a problem-based learning curriculum? I just interviewed with SHU and fell in love with their program, but I'm conflicted because of the area (I'd be moving from FL to CT). Does anyone know of other schools with a similar curriculum or...

    Good resource for online medical school lectures? Lecturio? Kaplan?

    Hi guys, I currently attend a Canadian medical school that has little to no lectures. Is there a way to still be able to get a traditional medical education with online lectures? I don't mind paying for the resources but wanted good quality lectures that go in depth. I am doing this for my own...

    School Learning Styles

    I have seen a lot of information on whether a school has didatics, TBL, and PBL and I'm wondering what the major differences are between each of them and what it is actually like to learn through these styles. What schools use all three vs only one?

    LECOM-Bradenton vs. VCOM-Auburn

    I have interviewed at both schools and really liked both. I'm having issues deciding. I learn best via conversation, talking things out. So the Lecture style at VCOM versus the PBL at LECOM isn't as cut and dry a choice. In the lecture, I am listening for hours. In PBL I am reading all day...

    What is USC's pbl REALLY like?

    I am having a hard time understanding what it's like to be a dental student at USC. If they don't have lectures, are they always just in PBL groups every day? How do they learn new material if no professor is lecturing? Any info about USC PBL would be much appreciated / or if you are actually a...

    Why is PBL hated so much?

    PBL, TBL, or whatever it's called, there seems to be a lot of hate directed towards this teaching method. Why? I don't have any experience with it, but after reading up on it, it doesn't seem that bad.

    For those that have done PBL style curriculums

    What's your opinion on it? I hear that the biggest advantage is that you can focus completely on studying whichever way is most efficient for you, but I'll have to admit that the idea of doing everything on my own makes be a bit nervous. I've always preferred small group work, and I learn well...

    Interview length Correlated with Hands on Curriculum

    Just an observation in my limited experience interviewing, But does length of the interview day correlate with TBL,PBL, curriculum and mandatory class attendance? Some schools that are hands off in terms of class attendance and availability of lectures have also had some of the shorter to the...

    Anyone at LECOM-B that can give me info on their structure/setup?

    Hey everyone, I'm currently a Florida resident getting my undergrad degree at USF in Tampa. I am wondering if someone could explain how the PBL structure works, as well as how the rotations work at LECOM-B? My main question is time in class/on campus, because if I go to LECOM-B I would prefer...

    Which of these schools are PBL-oriented?

    In a few years I plan on applying to these schools: UCLA, UCSF, NYU, UPenn, Columbia, USC, Boston University, Harvard, University of Maryland, University of Illinois, University of North Carolina. Looking at the USC threads I can infer that it's heavily based around PBL. Do you guys know if the...
