Monday, March 16, 2020
4:30 PM – 5:30 PM
There is an evolution in health professions education towards greater integration of the clinical and basic sciences in standardized tests such as the INBDE. This phenomenon involves an increasing number of questions that require test takers to apply their knowledge of biomedical and behavioral science to solve clinical cases. However, it is unrealistic to expect students to learn how to master these types of questions without guidance. This symposium will present two unique teaching methodologies used to promote cognitive integration of basic and clinical sciences when solving clinical problems.
Demonstrate two unique teaching methodologies used to promote cognitive integration of basic and clinical sciences when solving clinical problems.
Design exercises that enhance student knowledge retention by drawing connections/patterns with content from other subjects or disciplines.
Develop integrated test questions using Bloom's taxonomy.
