Team-based learning (TBL) is gaining popularity at medical schools transitioning from lecture-based to active learning curricula. Here, we review challenges and opportunities faced in implementing TBL at 2 new medical schools. We discuss the importance of using meaningful TBL grades as well as the role TBL plays in developing critical reasoning skills and in early identification of struggling students. We also discuss how the concurrent use of learning strategies with different incentive structures such as problem- and case-based learning could foster the development of well-rounded physicians. We hope this monograph helps and even inspires educators implementing TBL at their schools.
