McCurdy, Stephen A

Am J Prev Med. 2003. 24(4 Suppl):108-10.

The implementation of the Case-Based Series in Population-Oriented Prevention (C-POP) at the University of California at Davis Medical School is described. The implementation and planning for the integration of a case-based curriculum into a previously didactic-focused preventive medicine course are discussed. Issues include flexibility of the curriculum, student acceptance of case-based learning, and effect of preceptor availability and training on the successful implementation of the C-POP curriculum.
