Learning in the preclinical years occurs in the lecture hall, with professors delivering the details of how both the healthy and the diseased body functions. Guest lecturers, medical center, and community physicians, and specialists in research on current topics provide first-hand knowledge to supplement the instruction. Patients occasionally present to the class, giving a unique perspective.
Students learn hands-on in the laboratory settings, from dissecting the intricacies of the human body in gross anatomy lab, to viewing normal microscope slides in histology and diseased specimens in pathology. Lab studies are conducted in pairs or small groups, which encourages active learning and team work. Small groups are common in the classroom setting. Numerous courses assign case studies and projects designed for group learning. The application of the different teaching styles is specifically designed to maximize learning and prepare students to become critical thinkers.
