President of BMA Mentions Exeter College Medics in Presidential Address

Professor Parveen Kumar, in her Presidential address to the BMA on Wednesday June 28, described an experiment in which a group of her students from Barts and the London Hospital had taken part in an event at Exeter College. The aim was to compare the effects of the Problem Based Larning approach with which the Barts and the London students were taught with the classical way in which Exeter College students learn. Emily Pull, a third-year Exeter student, also reviewed a paper from Nature.
