    Does anyone know which DO schools incorporate problem-based learning?

    I know WVSOM is planning on implementing PBL soon.

    UHS uses a systems based approach. They call it the Genesis Curriculum. Check it out, it's one of the main reasons that I'm going there next year.

    I think there is a difference between PBL and system approach. WVSOM currently does that in their second year.

    OU-COM has a PBL program and I believe they enroll about 25% of their first year class in the program & they get more clinical exposure than the lecture pathway students. I'm really interested in PBL also.
