Abstract: This TBL on Herpes is an exercise that we use in the Basic Infectious Disease module of our Phase 2 curriculum at Tulane University School of Medicine (TUSOM). It runs at the end of the second semester of our pre-clinical curriculum, with a total of about 190 students. It is part of the Introduction to Infectious Diseases (IID) course and is facilitated by a Basic Scientist and a clinician. Phase 2 at TUSOM concentrates on the ‘abnormal’, integrating courses in Pharmacology, Mechanisms of Disease (i.e. Pathology), Clinical Diagnosis, Microbiology (IID), and Immunology. This TBL replaced several lectures related to the topic.

Target audience: Medical students
