The problem based learning (PBL) model of learning inherently provides an environment in which students can practice real world biomedical engineering utilizing cutting edge tools. The independent nature of the model promotes leadership and lifelong learning behaviors because the students are responsible for their learning and progress. The open-endedness of the problems encourages creativity and innovation as the students are allowed to define the direction and scope of the project. Since PBL is a team approach, students will become familiar with diversity of thought but also diversity in learning and problem solving styles. The proposed case will be on a much grander scale than anything the students have previously experienced. The activities will reinforce material from lecture and previous courses as well as teach the problem solving process.
