Background: Problem-based learning (PBL) is a well used educational strategy, more frequently used in the pre-clinical phase rather than the clinical phase of medical student learning. This practical application explores its use in a Family Medicine undergraduate clerkship. Method: The PBL application is described during a 10- week rotation in Family Medicine for final year medical students. 217 students were asked to rank 24 statements describing their PBL experience on a five-point Likert scale. The grading was supplemented by one qualitative question. The clinical tutors were asked to write an evaluation statement on their experience. Evaluation: The educational process was rated highly by students and faculty as a valuable learning methodology that enhanced their knowledge and understanding of patient problems, providing them with a more holistic approach to care. Conclusions: It would appear that PBL is infrequently used during clinical learning and specifically not in a Family Medicine clerkship. This small study supports its value to both student and faculty.
