The Faculty of Health Sciences at Linköping University has Problem Based Learning (PBL) as its pedagogical philosophy and method. PBL means that focus is placed on student involvement in the learning process. The student assumes responsibility for what he/she needs to learn, by analysing and dealing with situations associated with professional practice both in theoretical and practical study. The student seeks knowledge, selects, applies and evaluates this, and his/her learning in relation to individual learning goals. The teaching aims to stimulate and support the student’s development of professional competence and self-governed learning.
Teaching in this course will be provided through lectures, laboratory work, field studies and seminars.
Course examination is through a scientific project presented orally and as a paper at a seminar. Lectures, workshops and seminars are mandatory.

The planning and implementation of a course must take its starting point in the wording of the syllabus. The course evaluation included in each course must therefore take up the question how well the course agrees will the syllabus.

The course is carried out in such a way that both men’s and women’s experience and knowledge is made visible and developed.
If the course is discontinued or going through major revisions, examination opportunities are normally rendered according to the present course outline on three occasions within a year, one in close adjunction to the first examination date.
