I'm curious if anyone knows which top ranked schools have traditional lecture based curricula with either no, or very little, PBL. I know UCSF and Harvard NP are PBL, and Harvard HST is lecture. What about some others? Hopkins? Wash U?

Ah, you're the one who started the "Too Many Women In Medicine" thread in Everyone. That explains your kamra.

Columbia, Pritzker and HST come to mind right away for having rigidly lecture-based curricula. Be careful, though. You should understand your learning style very well before choosing a one-dimensional curriculum based heavily in either lecture or PBL.

Very true!! Anyhow, I know that Stanford has very little PBL...mainly lecture.

BTW, your karma...ahemm...what did you do??

PBL is such a big thing nowadays...well good PBL can make it resemble more the actual thought and decision making process in clinical setting, but I still like all those lectures that I can fall back on

I believe Vandy and Emory have a traditional curriculum.

Why? Doesn't Dr. Koop teach there? They're small...in fact, if you look at the complexity index of the type of cases they see at DHC...it's one of the highest in the country...it's top ranked in my books....great place to learn medicine. Also, they have one of the highest per investigator funding in the country!

Dartmouth isn't ranked high in USNews Research ranking, partly because it's a small school with limited resource to recruit many researchers. It has been trying to shoot up its ranking over the years by increasing NIH funding.
