Bridging the gap from medical school to the Foundation Year Programme, Problem Based Learning has been widely adopted by UK medical schools. This new, GMC-approved method of learning uses clinical scenarios to prompt self-directed learning for medical students. The use of real-life scenarios enables students to envisage the cases within a hospital setting - making them better prepared for the challenges of their Foundation Years. Core Clinical Cases: Problem Based Learning Book 2 features more than 20 cases for students to work through. Each case is presented as a question in the first instance, challenging the reader to consider the investigation, diagsis and treatment of patients in real-life scenarios. All cases are then examined and a full explanation is given to allow the reader to develop their kwledge, whilst testing their understanding.This new title from PasTest is a valuable reference tool for medical students at all stages of their training. It is the second problem based learning title from PasTest and builds on the success of Core Clinical Cases: Problem Based Learning - Self Assessment for Medical Students . It is a concise practical guide for diagsing and managing common cases. It has a range of clinical scenarios covering major specialties.
