ANALYSIS OF ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE AND DROP OUT RATE IN THE COURSE OF PATHOPHYSIOLOGY IN PHARMACY STUDIES

The objective of this project was to analyze the results as a consequence of the implementation of two new teaching methods in teaching Pathophysiology, core subject taught in third year of the Bachelor of Pharmacy at the University of Seville, and compare the results as for the academic performance and dropout rate among the both methodologies. The project is conducted on a total of 593 students divided into 4 groups. Innovative teaching activities that were compared are an activity that involves the development of agenda items, and other activity that involves the resolution of clinical cases. The result of comparative analysis between the two teaching methods shows that the incorporation of clinical cases of Pathophysiology teaching benefits the students, not only in their involvement and knowledge of the matter, but also in improving test scores. Furthermore, students have expressed satisfaction with certain aspects of new methodologies implemented appreciating the experience.
