The Use of Analogies as a Methodology in the School of Medicine
Corona, José Luis Jiménez; Vindel, Isabel Mª Ferrándiz
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v5 n5 p373-378 2012
In recent years, the School of Medicine of the National Autonomous University of Mexico has been largely engaged in the global medical education trend, through the implementation of curriculum changes which include new methods of teaching and learning. These "new" methods seek to change from the use of teacher-centered strategies or traditional ones, to the student-centered strategies or innovating ones. The fulfillment of this study is due to the need to find educative strategies which help improve our students' learning in a clinical subject which is taught in the basic sciences cycle (this cycle comprises the first and second year of the degree), allowing the interrelation between basic sciences and clinical sciences subjects.
