Description

This team-based learning (TBL) module will instruct obstetrics and gynecology clerkship students on diagnosis and initial management of PMS, PMDD, sexually transmitted infections, pelvic organ prolapse and menopause. This module is ideally suited for an active learning curriculum in which students are accustomed to preparing ahead of time and working through questions and cases in the classroom. The module includes a Readiness Assessment Test to be taken individually and as a team, an Application Test to be taken as a team and the various forms we use logistically to deploy the module. The advantages of this module are: 1) less faculty preparation time is required 2) students are actively engaged in application of the material 3) no traditional lecturing is required. Students are assessed using multiple choice questions, and their group interactions are assessed by their peers. This module can be scaled to any size group greater than a minimum of 10 since students form teams of 5-7 for the exercise
