In order to better prepare for life outside of college and for continued learning, Cindy E. Hmelo and Xiaodong Lin explain what is needed to become a competent physician in Problem-based Learning: A Research Perspective on Learning Interactions*.

Physicians “need to know how to go beyond what they already know to deal with new problems successfully. In order to go beyond what is known and to create new knowledge for novel situations, they need to know what they need to learn about a particular situation, what particular medical procedures and resources are appropriate for the situation, how to formulate questions to seek the specific information needed, and how the knowledge (new or old) can be applied in practice.”

Try Case Files® today to begin your journey to lifelong, self-directed learning.
