Abstract

We report an active learning session which effectively supported 1st year medical students applying their learning experience in a clinical setting. A team-based learning (TBL) on familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) with a live patient was given to deliver basic genetics knowledge in a clinically relevant context. Subsequently, two participating students applied their learning experience by presenting a differential diagnosis of homozygous FH in a patient at a medical mission in Central America. We propose that combining active learning with clinically relevant scenarios effectively fosters student’s clinical reasoning skills and can bridge the perceived gap between basic science and clinical education.
