You will join a small group of 10-12 students supervised by a facilitator, who is an experienced clinician. You will stay with this same group throughout your first year of study, before joining a new PBL group in your second year.
Your PBL facilitator also delivers your clinical and communication skills sessions, as well as acting as your main pastoral contact, ensuring you settle into life as a medical student while progressing through the programme.
You will work very closely with your PBL group and clinical tutor, tackling different learning points, discussing issues, sharing knowledge and developing an understanding of key concepts together. Your group will spend a lot of time together, which is a great way to develop team-working skills and make new friends.
