Medical Teacher, v17 n3 p307-13 Sep 1995
The current emphasis in medical education is on engaging learners in deep processing of information to achieve better understanding of the subject matter. Traditional approaches aimed for memorization of medical facts; however, a good memory for medical facts is still essential in clinical practice. This study demonstrates that deep information processing in itself significantly enhances recall of medical facts. (Author/PVD)
