Am J Prev Med. 2003 May;24(4 Suppl):102-7. doi: 10.1016/s0749-3797(03)00030-8.


This article describes the pilot testing of the Case-Based Series in Population-Oriented Prevention (C-POP) and accompanying evaluation instruments in a problem-based medical curriculum at the University of Rochester Medical Center. Several of the cases were successfully taught in the curriculum, but the evaluation instruments revealed no change in population-oriented skills or orientation. Issues of implementation and evaluation of the C-POP curriculum are discussed.
