Medical Education, 2009
"The Medical School of Universidade Cidade de Sa˜o Paulo (City University of Sao Paulo), Brazil was founded in 2003 and has a curriculum structured across 6 years. The first 4 years use problem-based learning (PBL) and are integrated, community-based and student-centred. These are followed by 2 years of internship. Following the Brazilian National Guidelines for Medical Education, the internship was designed to include rotations in paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology, surgery, internal medicine, mental health and public health. Since the inception of this internship, we have used Moodle as an open-source e-learning platform to design and create online courses with a high degree of interactivity in order to improve information uptake."
