Experience with portfolio-based learning in family medicine for master of medicine degree.
The Private Practitioners Stream (PPS) of the Family Medicine Traineeship Programme for the Master of Medicine (Family Medicine) (MMed (FM)) was started in 1995.
The portfolio-based learning approach was used as the staple learning method in the tutorial system.
Due to the autonomy given to Family Medicine trainees in choosing the topics for the portfolio-based presentations, the completeness of coverage of the Family Medicine training syllabus is a research question.
To study if portfolio-based presentations in a tutorial system covered the broad based Family Medicine training syllabus.
Data in the one-page portfolio-based records developed were used to categorise the presentations according to the topics in the Family Medicine Modular Course. esults : In the three-year period since the introduction of the PPS, 83 tutorials were conducted in which 87 portfolio-based presentations were made.
Thirteen (15%) were in the Whole Person Medicine category, 70 (80%) in the Disease Management category and 4 (5%) in the Practice Management category.
The portfolio-based learning is recognised as useful in continuing medical education because of the autonomy it gives to the adult learner.
In our three years'experience, the one-page portfolio-based record developed was effective as the staple learning tool to cover the broad range of topics required in the defined syllabus of training and to meet the focus of the MMed (FM) examination.
