(IQ) Teams = a small, student-centered learning team that uses elaborate patient cases and discussion to learn, retain, synthesize and integrate knowledge. In an IQ Team, students prepare for and do most of the talking. Each team includes 8-9 students and a faculty member who facilitates discussion, ensures that the learning objectives are addressed and that each member of the group contributes to the learning effort.
