Abstract

Small group learning and instructional design play a significant role in the educational process for health education students. Small groups in health science curricula provide learners with opportunities to engage as a team, learn through observation and collaboration, hone communication skills, develop higher‐order thinking, synthesize information, and develop group consensus. Team‐based care (the standard in many health fields) necessitates that learners acquire these essential skills prior to entering the clinic. In health science education, faculty members present the “case” and facilitate small groups. The groups then engage in deductive reasoning to arrive at a diagnosis, and in some cases a treatment plan.
