This short blog post from a new-ish addition to Team PebblePad, Paul Duvall, Implementation Specialist and resident expert on all things medical education, focuses on the current challenges faced by medical schools and discusses how PebblePad's Learning Journey Platform can offer solutions to overcome them. The blog post also contains links to our new medical education page and publication, which both contain several case studies (including an award-winning example) from the world of medicine and the healthcare sector.
