For Harris Syed, class of 2020, it’s an engaging way to learn.
“You’re using your knowledge to answer questions, as opposed to just passively sitting back, where it's easy to get distracted.”

What Are the Faculty Saying?
“It’s all in the service of training doctors who are ready to tackle the challenges of 21st century medicine,” says Larner Endowed Professor of Medical Education Kathryn Huggett, Ph.D. “Especially when active learning requires team work, it more closely resembles a real work experience.”
“When students work through clinical problems and experience it as a process, it sticks,” says Rebecca Wilcox, M.D., associate professor of pathology and laboratory medicine. “This is great for retention but it also helps you grow as a team player and as a communicator – all essential skills to practicing medicine.”
