other posts show which schools have a lot of PBL-
CCLCM, Mizzou, Hawaii, SIU, Harvard, Cornell, etc
most schools claim to use quite a bit of both methods
i learn best when i just read books or articles or whatever. several people i know in med school say they simply don't go to lecture often and instead study all the time. assuming i'm lucky enough to get into med school, i will probably be one of these people too. i'm taking an undergraduate bio course right now taught in pbl format by med school faculty and i don't think pbl suits me.
i wanted to know which schools have minimal or no pbl/small group learning, for example less than 3-4 hours/week.
I realize this could be a big list, but I'd to know which schools have a largely traditional curriculum.
Med school curriculli evolve, generally after seeing other schools have success with other modes. A school locked in tradition in the face of other places having success with things like PBL, increased clinical exposure, built in research electives, decreased lecture hours, subject vs systems approaches, etc, is possibly a school you might not want to go to. So while PBL may not be your cup of tea, "traditional" is probably not always the virtue you make it out to be.
