The Patient-Oriented Problem-Solving (POPS) System in Pharmacology consists of a series of exercises that contain simulations of clinical problems.
Each exercise is designed for a group of four students, although adaptations can be made for different group sizes. Each exercise includes a pretest and a posttest, thus providing a mechanism for measuring learner achievement. Both the pretest and the posttest are designed to be completed by the students individually. Each of the four parts contains answers to a subset of the pretest questions and information about one episode in the clinical problem. Thus, the students must exchange information and work together to arrive at the solutions.
Access to the POPS System in Pharmacology is restricted to non-student Members only. If you are a non-student member, login to your account now. If you are having trouble accessing this page, contact the membership team.
