GALINDO CARDENAS, Leonor Angélica et al. How does Problem Based Learning transform the educational senses in the program of Medicine at University of Antioquia?. Iatreia [online]. 2011, vol.24, n.3, pp. 325-334. ISSN 0121-0793.
Ever since curricular reforms were made at the Faculty of Medicine (University of Antioquia, Medellín, Colombia), Problem Based Learning has been implemented as one of the active didactic strategies that may help students to lead their process of learning. To assess the impact of this strategy on the curriculum, a qualitative research was carried out. All the results: interviews with experts, surveys with the participants in the strategy and documents written by professors of the medical school were triangulated. Findings show that participants are satisfied with the use of the strategy and acknowledge its importance in the integral formation of students. However, PBL is not the only teaching option to be used in our curriculum.
