Problem-based learning(PBL) is defined as a process of acquiring understanding, knowledge, skills and attitudes in the context of an unfamiliar situation, and applying such learning to that situation. PBL is a way of enabling students thinking more efficiently than they can do in the traditional methods of learning. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the results of PBL conducted in Keimyung University College of Medicine in 1999 as a preliminary course. Tutorials of the PBL course were assigned to ten groups during the third and fourth quarter. In total 6 modules were performed. Each PBL tutorial consisted of 3 meetings and 2 hours were assigned to each meeting. The ability of stating and solving problems, the level of knowledge and assignments were scored and graded. The aptitude for PBL course was evaluated by students and tutors in terms of module, tutor, facilities and in total. Students showed moderate achievement(72.96+/-15.96). Regarding the aptitude of PBL course, most tutors and students showed positive responses. Tutors showed more favorable responses in tutor, facilities and in total.
