Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine the year 1 and year 2 medical students’ perceptions on problem based learning (PBL) in the preclinical year curriculum. The data was drawn from a survey conducted among 134 medical students. The results indicate that the students perceived PBL to stimulate their learning environment and enable them to practice teamwork and problem solving skills. More in depth research through qualitative methods should be conducted to provide further evidence on the effectiveness of PBL and suggest areas for improvement.
