FASCE H, Eduardo et al. Problem based learning in physics. Comparison with traditional teaching in medical students. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2001, vol.129, n.9, pp.1031-1037. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872001000900008.

Background: Problem based learning, integrating basic science with clinical problems, is one of the most recommended forms of teaching for medical schools. Aim: To compare a problem based learning program for physics with traditional teaching methods. Material and methods: In the physics course, first year medical students were separated in groups with traditional learning and problem based teaching. Both groups were subjected to the same knowledge and qualitative evaluations. Results: At the end of the course, cognitive performance in both groups was similar (60.8 and 61.3% among traditional teaching and problem based learning groups respectively). However, students assigned to the problem based learning group evaluated significantly better the teaching methodology and process. Conclusions: Physics education, using problem based learning, obtains the same cognitive results but a higher degree of satisfaction than traditional teaching among students (Rev Méd Chile 2001; 129: 1031-7)
