Abstract
WHAT IS ALREADY KNOWN IN THIS AREA In traditional undergraduate curricula we face the challenge to assist future doctors to make the U turn from largely lecture-based learning to learning from experience. Learning style inventories can be used to initiate change in student approaches to learning. WHAT THIS WORK ADDS Changing the educational context to practical-based learning and small group teaching in the primary care setting resulted in a significant shift to a deeper approach to learning. SUGGESTIONS FOR FUTURE RESEARCH Further research is needed to test for concurrent validity of our findings in comparable cohorts Long-running cohort studies would be able to show if effects on learning styles are long-lasting.
