Show Summary Details


The Faculty of Medicine was founded in 1974, as the first faculty of the new University of Maastricht. From the outset, problem-based learning (PBL) has been the trademark of the university and the Faculty of Medicine. Other faculties were established later (from 1977 onwards) and followed suit by adopting PBL as their primary method of learning. This chapter concentrates on the history of PBL within the (former) Faculty of Medicine, which today has merged with the Faculty of Health Sciences into the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences.
