Abstract

In the last two decades, the concept of student-centered learning and problem-based learning (PBL) have swept through the educational community in most of the advanced countries. In medical PBL education, traditionally in order to train the students to be able to diagnose a patient with certain symptoms, the training procedure is always very time-consuming and labor-intensive. In particular there are usually only very limited number of specialists in practice. In order to solve this problem, we have developed a web-based PBL training system for medical education. The system can emulate a real clinical case that enables students to go through each step of a diagnosis procedure in an attempt to diagnose and cure a patient's disease. We believe that the system can significantly improve the learning efficiency and effectiveness for medical education.
