dc.description.abstract Problem-based learning (PBL) has become a popular approach for teaching in medical schools due to its effectiveness in imparting clinical reasoning skills. But the PBL does not make very efficient use of the instructor’s time since it requires an instructor to spend large amounts of time with small groups of students. Recent the COMET intelligent tutoring system was developed in order to automate the process of medical PBL so that students may obtain more practice than is available with the instructors’ limited time. While COMET has been shown to be effective, one limitation is that its knowledge only as broad as each problem scenario description. Access to broader medical knowledge would open the possibility for COMET to provide more flexible and robust tutoring. Thus we were motivated to interface COMET to the existing UMLS medical ontology. This research study describes the implementation of that interface, as well as its evaluation. en_US
