Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

Team-based learning with case presentations in small groups in the medical school education setting allows students to be actively engaged and interactive with their peers to work through real-world clinical scenarios. Our objective is to assess the effects of this curriculum on the medical student experience.

DESIGN:

This study was designed to gather feedback from medical students on an ophthalmology elective regarding their experience with our newly developed team-based learning curriculum.

SETTINGS:

Feedback evaluations were completed by medical students at the end of their elective and consisted of both a Likert scare rating and a free-response section.

PARTICIPANTS:

A total of 30 medical students.

RESULTS:

Students rated the case-based sessions significantly better than traditional lecture format with respect to the overall learning experience (p = 0.004), enjoyment of learning (p < 0.001), and increasing retention and ability to apply knowledge (p < 0.001).

CONCLUSIONS:

There is a strong preference by medical students for team-based learning within clinical ophthalmology.
