Further information about course/programme/lecturer
Second year is systems based, integrating physiology, pharmacology, anatomy and other biomedical sciences and public health. This is combined with relevant clinical issues explored by problem-based learning, lectures, small group tutorials and fixed resource sessions.
The second year of the programme aims to help students acquire and apply knowledge in biomedical sciences that underpins clinical medicine; to encourage acquisition of skills and competences that underpin clinical practice, and the values, attitudes and behaviours of medical practitioners. The course also aims to provide the opportunity for students to spend five weeks studying a topic of their choice to greater depth, thereby developing skills in data analysis, report writing and oral presentation as well as enhancing biomedical and clinical knowledge. Lectures engage with the medical humanities and disability studies.
