Problem based learning is a teaching-learning model that may transform medical education practices. This model is the basis of a curricular reform at the Medical School, University of Antioquia, in Medellín, Colombia. Such reform has allowed to overcome some of the difficulties and deficiencies commonly found in the process of training doctors; besides, it has been possible to propose a curricular model centered on meaningful, social and cooperative learning through problem solving.
