As part of the renewal of the MD program at the Feinberg School of Medicine, a number of new teaching modalities have been put in place. Along with simulation technology and Problem-Based Learning (PBL), which have become mainstays of the curricular model, Team-Based Learning (TBL) and screen casting have been introduced. In addition, innovative new programs have been created to introduce students to scholarly research and augment their classroom instruction with relevant longitudinal clinical experiences as early as their first year.
