Clinical Foundation Instructors - Problem Based Learning (PBL) Groups

University of California, San Diego

The University of California, San Diego, School of Medicine, Division of Medical Education (https://meded.ucsd.edu/) is committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff and student body and and seek Clinical Foundation Instructors for the Practice Based Learning (PBL) Groups.

During the PBL sessions, students will explore content from both the Health and Human Disease ("biomedical science") and Clinical Foundations ("doctoring") courses. The cases serve as a vehicle to explore and understand a range of topics. In this way, the material is given real-world context, similar to what occurs during actual patient care. The cases are designed to provide students with a multi-dimensional exploration of the complex issues that affect the lives of patients.

The faculty tutor for each PBL will be responsible for facilitating the assigned case of the week. Cases will correlate closely with the HHD material being taught in each organ-based integrated block of the curriculum. PBL groups are the "glue" between the HHD and CF longitudinal components of the curriculum. As such, they will have biomedical, psychosocial, ethical, clinical decision-making, and systems based practice objectives. The PBL process will also promote the development of the attitudes and skills necessary for lifelong learning and effective teamwork.

We seek candidates with a interest in and commitment to the PBL process, understand the content of the case, and guide the group in a way that fosters intellectual growth.
