Development and Evaluation of a Longitudinal Case-Based Learning (CBL) Experience for a Geriatric Medicine Rotation
Struck, Bryan D.; Teasdale, Thomas A.
Gerontology & Geriatrics Education, v28 n3 p105-114 Jan 2008
The DWR Department of Geriatric Medicine at OUHSC and the OKC VA Medical Center began a mandatory third-year geriatric medicine clerkship in 2003. As part of the didactic sessions, the Department created a longitudinal Case-Based Learning (CBL) experience. The purpose of this paper is to describe the CBL experience, report student satisfaction with the CBL process, and discuss how students value CBL as a teaching method compared to other methods. The results indicate that CBL is highly valued among the students due to the interactive nature of the sessions and longitudinal nature of the cases. (Contains 2 tables.)
