Science Knowledge Integrated into Patient Presentation (SKIPPs) is an active learning approach based on Problem-Based Learning (PBL) and Argument-Based Inquiry. Developed at DMU over the last year, an initial standalone pilot implementation was done this spring with 27 DO’18s. Within this approach, students develop an integrated understanding of their coursework as they are required to provide justification through each step of solving the cases from patient presentation through diagnosis. Initial student responses are positive. Extensions of this project are currently planned in several courses.
