The Effect of Applying Online PBL Case System to Multiple Disciplines of Medical Education
Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology Volume 11, Number 4, ISSN 1303-6521
Teaching cases in medical education are often exhibited through various professional angles, but for patient-centered teaching cases, the division of labor among different specialties is even more important. However, general medical education platforms cannot provide such mechanisms for physicians. Thus, this study adopted a clinical medical education platform "HINTS" to establish a patient-centered interdisciplinary medical/clinical education mechanism for medical students to obtain a more holistic thinking process in practical training for clinical medicine. Additionally, rule-based and document-view methods were administered to successfully establish methods to edit and present teaching cases, installing them on "HINTS." The results of the preliminary experimentation show that applying online PBL case system can be very beneficial for the learning effects of medical students. (Contains 2 tables and 4 figures.)
