AbstractIntroduction: The Faculty of Medicine of the University of Hong Kong launched its new medical curriculum in 1997. It was an integrated and system-based curriculum, with problem-based learning (PBL) being one of its new pedagogy. This paper describes the quality assurance of the introduction of PBL. Materials and Methods: Regular PBL tutor training and case-writing workshops were conducted, with experts both locally and internationally invited to serve as trainers. The monitoring mechanism was the use of paper questionnaires filled by both students and teachers. A group with a view to improve the process and the content of PBL studied the ratings of these evaluations. Results: In 3 years, a total of 40 training workshops were held and, 268 tutors and 57 case-writers were initiated. Most of the teachers were convinced that PBL did work even in students who came from a didactic learning background. Extensive and continued refresher PBL workshops would be necessary. Conclusion: A stringent monitoring and evaluation process formed an integral part of an effective introduction of PBL in the medical curriculum.
