STEM2020 - Case-based learning in Anatomy and Physiology for pre-medical students: An opportunity for team work, leadership and stealthy reflective practice

In 2016 we formally introduced case/team-based learning into Level 5 of our BSc Medical Sciences and BSc Human Biology degrees to support our undergraduate students to develop their team working and team leadership skills. Components of the courses were rearranged allowing us to refocus Level 5 around six, three-week authentic ‘case blocks’ nested within three anatomy, physiology and clinical practice modules. Each team of six mixed cohort, mixed ability students took turns leading a case throughout the year culminating in a written personal reflection and evaluation of their role within the team.
