Abstract

The history of the implementation of PBL which started in 1978 is long and there have been many ups and downs in the process of getting it to work. Of course there are many reasons for this, starting with the fact that basically it is a method of learning of medicine that is being tried out in various parts of the world. What is envisaged by KU is a hybrid form of the process to be implemented for the MBBS course that KUSMS conducts at its campus at Chaukot, Kavre and at its seven affiliated medical colleges. Various points regarding this are discussed in this article. The information provided in the MBBS curriculum of KU was analysed and comments made there on. The syllabi of IoM, BPKIHS and PAHS were also referred to, to note the existing differences. 

Keywords: BPKIHS; ICM; IIME; IoM; KU; NMC; PAHS; SDL; WFME.
