Important changes to CBL tutorial cases


Med 1 CBL Tutorial Case Diversification - The Case Diversification Committee is making available a series of resources for students, tutors, and faculty members on the changes made to the CBL tutorial cases, and on the dimensions of diversity that have been added to the cases. Watch this space as resources become available. Please note we are rolling out the new cases for the Med 1 class only during the 2022/23 academic year. The new Med 2 cases will be implemented in the following academic year (2023/24).
