Abstract Context: The information explosion and continual changes in the means of accessing information have reinforced the importance of preparing graduates to direct their own learning throughout their careers. Increasingly, medical schools are turning to problem-based curricula to develop in graduates the capacity to 'self-direct' further learning. Problem: Experience shows that, to achieve this goal, there needs to be consistency in interpretation of the goal and faculty-wide agreement about the way the problem-based curriculum fosters self-direction. Suggested solution: This paper describes the conceptual framework developed by the Graduate School of Medicine, The University of Queensland, to guide the achievement of self-directed, lifelong learning in a graduate entry, problem-based curriculum. Implications: It may be useful for others who are experiencing difficulties with implementing problem-based curricula, and for those who are contemplating changing to problem-based models.
