    UMDNJ-SOM also has a small PBL program. I have heard that this may not exist next year though (unknown until curriculum finalized).

    SIU in Springfield has an exclusively PBL curriculum.

    Just out of curiosity--I get the impression from reading some threads here that some people think PBL is a bad thing. Is there any particular reason in terms of academic outcome? Or is it mainly just personal preference?

    Thanks,

    Since no one at PNWU is a second year yet, it is hard to tell how well the PBL segment will be received, but I think the goal of making it "PBL'ish" is to make the program a "middle ground" so that those who abhor PBL will not be punished, but those who enjoy it will get a lot out of it. The impression I get however is that it is very much supplementary to the core curriculum.
