CURRENT BSEF PROJECTS
At the 3rd Annual Meeting of the Basic Science Education Forum held on October 23, 1990 in San Francisco, four issues were defined that we are addressing in various ways. Each of our Regional Directors has volunteered to coordinate efforts for one topic. If you have interests and opinions and/or wish to work with others toward the resolution of one or more of the following, please contact the designated individual. Our long-term goal is to create workable solutions to these problems.
Integration of the Curriculum: Defining the Role of Basic Scientists in the Clinical Educational Setting and Clinicians in the Basic Science Educational Setting.
contact: Richard Hyde, Ph.D.
(The program for the 4th Annual Meeting of the Basic Science Education Forum to be held on November 13, 1991 in Washington, DC was designed with this topic in mind. Panel Discussants will explore means currently in use for underscoring basic science content within the clinical years.)
Information Overload: Defining Essential Curricular Objectives.

Problem Based Learning: Defining the Role of Basic Scientists in Optimizing Basic Science Content within a PBL Program.
