Here are Hull York Medical School, Problem Based Learning (PBL) is at the heart of our education philosophy.

Your PBL tutor supports and guides the group and, as a practising clinician, helps you to learn in a clinically relevant context, using the language of medicine to discuss cases from the very beginning of your undergraduate course.  You will benefit from their day-to-day experience in hospitals and GP practices, learning professional values and behaviours.

What happens during problem based learning:

  • The aim of your first PBL session of the week is to find out what you need to know to understand the problem fully. You’ll work as a group to identify all the issues or learning outcomes that each problem raises.
  • For most of the rest of the week, you’ll explore these issues through plenary sessions, resource sessions, clinical skills teaching, clinical placement and your own individual study – all closely related to the topic you’re working on.
  • Later in the week in your second PBL session, your group will meet again with your tutor to share and discuss what each of you has discovered, consolidating the key information.

“Hull York Medical School students stand out in their placements at my GP practice. Their excellent communication skills, attention to detail and the ability to think around a problem, really differentiates them from other students.” DR CHRIS STANLEY, GP WITH THE HAXBY GROUP

“Keeping up to date with rapidly advancing scientific knowledge is a challenge for today’s medical professionals at all stages of their career. Clinical reasoning, critical thinking and ongoing self-directed learning skills are crucial to your success as a doctor, and all of which our problem based learning helps you to develop” DR MARIE COHEN, DIRECTOR OF PROBLEM BASED LEARNING, GP AND MACMILLAN GP FACILITATOR

From the beginning of your course at HYMS, you will use a blended approach to build your knowledge of human anatomy, using a combination of learning resources including prosections, plastinated specimens, anatomical models, videos, e-learning resources, radiological imaging and the clinical examination of living anatomy. This will be supported by a programme of lectures, workshops and problem-based learning.

“Using prosections and plastinated specimens help you learn the structure of the human body in a clinically-focused and time-efficient manner. Together, these tools provide all the knowledge and applied anatomy skills you need for your medical career.” DR PETER BAZRIA, SENIOR LECTURER IN CLINICAL ANATOMY

We offer opportunities for medical students to undertake dissection-based studies of anatomy, over and above the requirements of the core medical curriculum. You may choose, for instance, to undertake a detailed dissection of an anatomical region of the body as part of the Scholarship and Special Interest Programme or during your elective, to study anatomy in depth within a clinical context.

We also offer several intercalation opportunities:
