GENERAL INFORMATION
The School of Medicine was established as ‘Denizli Medical School’ as part of Dokuz Eylül University, in 1987. Pamukkale University School of Medicine started the hospital services in 1994. School of Medicine started to teach 4th, 5th and 6th year students in the 1996-97 academic year. The faculty has adopted ‘active learning’ based on problems. The method is student centered, and it is based on: problem in first, second, and third years; and tasks in the forth and fifth years. The 6th year covers the internship in order for the student to internalize the importance of scientific thinking and continuous in service education and development. Problem solving based learning sessions bring in crucial skills of: collaboration, group work, leading a group, listening, note-taking, respecting the other members’ ideas, making critical reviews of publications, self-learning, finding the sources, and making presentations. Besides these sessions, the syllabus covers presentations of biological, behavioral and communicative skills, professional ethics; applications of anatomy, laboratory and professional skills; studies on presentations and fieldwork of social matters; and modules of work specifically targeting research and information access skills. The educational program within the structured disease groups is task-based; furthermore, the method is enriched with hands-on instruction, clinical applications, and presentations of the faculty members, seminars and fieldwork.

TEACHING & LEARNING METHODS
NameComments
LecturingLecturing is one of the methods that come first, where the teacher is in the center. It is a method where the teacher actively describes topics and the students are passive listeners. With this method, lesson proceeds in the form of report, description and explanation.
DebateDepending on the situation, debate is a tool that allows all students, or a specific portion of the class to participate in the lesson. In this method, members of the group discuss a topic by addressing the various points of view and discuss alternative opinions about problem-solving.
DemonstrationIn this method the teacher demonstrates, an experiment, test, in front of the class. And then assists students to do so too. Students learn not only by just by looking and watching, but also by taking part and participating. This method is usually applied when teaching skills.
Case Study Case studies require students to actively participate while using an analytical perspective to think about real and problematic events. The problematic event may be real or very close to real life. Student(s) working on the documents that include the necessary data and descriptions of the
Problem SolvingThe name given to any doubt or ambiguity that arises is, a problem. Problems which usually have a role in human life, that have preventing or annoying aspects are solved by considering the stages of scientific methods. (a) Problems are determined. (b) The problem is identified. 
Cooperative LearningCooperative Learning is; a kind of learning that is based on the students working together for a common purpose. Children with different skills come together in heterogeneous groups to learn by helping each other. Students gain experiences such as becoming aware of the unity

If possible Questions, that serve a purpose and
Concept MapsExpress a relation network, based on figures, graphics and words propositions and principles. It enables visual learning. These steps are followed: 1) Concepts about the subjects to be taught are listed. 2) The name of the subject that will be taught is written at the top.3) Relations between
Learning Stations Is a student –centered method in which the whole class contributes to each stage and with this contribution, progress further to the next level in learning than the previous group.

Scenario-based teaching Although it is similar to the Case Study method, there is a fictional approach in the scenario. The subject can be presented by inserting it in to a fiction and can also lead the student’s to producing their own scenarios.
Technical TourIs a method that takes learning to the out of the classroom. It is a method that provides students to make direct observations and to gain information by taking them to places, such as factories, museums, libraries, various government agencies, mountains, forests, lakes, parks and gardens.
Observation Although we generally get information related to the nature through observations, the Observation method can also be used for other situations and under other conditions. We try to reach certain generalizations by thinking about our findings which we gather from our observations.
Testing Means reaching results by using various information with certain mechanisms, which are set up to imitate natural events in artificial environments and to have students take a certain topics and applying them to reach certain aims/objectives. Nature researchers, scientists, and educators
