Drexel librarians are ready to collaborate with faculty to integrate literature search skills into the curriculum. One example at Drexel University College of Medicine is the Program for Integrated Learning (PIL), which offers first- and second-year medical students an alternative to a lecture-based curriculum.
Guided by faculty, PIL students meet in small groups, where clinical cases act as a framework for learning the scientific basis of medical practice. Students identify information they need in order to explain the facts of the case. After searching for relevant information between group meetings, they present it at the next session. This interactive learning format has extra benefits of building skills in teamwork and lifelong, independent learning.
