Program advantages

Advantages of Mansoura Manchester Program for Medical Education (MMPME)

  • The program relies primarily on self-directed learning and student-centered education, using:

    Problem Based Learning (PBL) method:
    In small working groups (10-15 students) and credit hours.

Themed Case Discussions (TCDs):
TCD is a flipped classroom model of teaching via weekly case discussions targeting the theme of the week. Many students are inductive rather than deductive reasoners, which mean they learn better from examples rather than the logical development starting with basic principles. This will be a great opportunity for the students to solve real life problems, test their problem-solving skills and to become engaged in discussions and assimilation of new ideas and information.

Clinical Debrief:
Clinical debrief is basically a bidirectional learning via learning conversations. It will be a good opportunity for the students to recognize, interpret and diagnose clinical problems.
The clinical tutor guides the student to review cases at the clinical setting. After completion of the weekly clinical sessions, a clinical debrief session will be conducted every week to discuss the cases prepared by the students throughout the prior clinical sessions.
