ASCP created a subcommittee to develop innovative strategies to teach psychopharmacology. This subcommittee, chaired by Dr. Mujeeb U. Shad, decided to introduce problem-based learning in psychopharmacology to promote an interactive and collaborative teaching environment. A pilot project was initiated to test the feasibility of PBL in psychopharmacology by presenting challenging clinical cases to psychiatry residents from different residency programs. The feedback from the residents was quite positive and is now published as a paper in Academic Psychiatry.  The nine cases that were developed for the pilot project have been reviewed and approved by the Chair of the subcommittee and the ASCP education committee for publication as an optional and innovative tool to teach psychopharmacology.  Please click on the button below to view.
