Problem-based learning (PBL) has long been recognized as a valuable pedagogical tool. The Biomedical Masters in Science (BMS) program is uniquely suited to promote active learning through the use of discussion based PBLs, but also foster a supportive community of learners by incorporating volunteer facilitators that are BMS alums and current medical students at Marian University. PBLs extend our Medical Physiology and Pharmacology curriculum, but also provide an opportunity for different learners to connect material across graduate and medical curriculums. PBL exercises are graded via a group rubric, while debriefing and reflection occurs via the video response system FlipGrid.
