pbl
Problem Based Learning

aka a mountain of faeces that poor UK med students are subjected to. The aim of the task is to pretend to understand (supposedly for the sake of their future career under the NHS... ahem) each medical scenario using "oh-so-clever" patient names to give "ever-so-subtle" hints to the true diagnosis, e.g. Mr. Art Attak...

...Oh for fucks sake.
student A: I never understand what we're meant to get from this. Fuck it, I'll just sit here quietly and nod.

student B: so read the fucking 6 lines of pbl scenario and lets sit here for 2 hours BRAINSTORMING and going through the SEVEN STAGES of a PERFECT fucking pbl. And we do this every topic, every term for how many years of medskool?

student C: I'm off peeps I've got the tutor's notes

10 years later in the hospital..

Patient rushed into A&E with a knife stabbed into his skull, bleeding and unconscious.

A: I'm still confused, what's wrong with him? Is that blood? I'll just sit here quietly and nod.
B: I need to brainstorm quick someone I need a whiteboard!
C: Shit, I didn't photocopy the notes for this!
