Teaching

  • SHF100 Anatomy and Physiology 2

    This module aims to provide an understanding of the structure and function of the key systems which is a core requirement of osteopathic medicine. This module builds upon knowledge introduced in SHF109 Anatomy and Physiology 1, and develops the understanding of the structure and functions of the key systems of the body. This knowledge will underpin the pathophysiology and therapeutics covered in Year 2.

  • SHF105 Osteopathic Skills 1

    This module introduces the students to the concepts of osteopathic practice as well as the core clinical skills of basic life skills, patient moving and handling, and anatomical principles. It provides the foundation skills for all subsequent osteopathic skills modules for the programme.

  • SHF109 Anatomy and Physiology 1

    This module utilises lecture and laboratory based study to explore the anatomy and physiology of the major body systems. Furthermore, this module will be used to underpin the knowledge required to understand clinical presentation, diagnosis and osteopathic management of pathological conditions.

  • SHF203 Osteopathic Skills 3

    This module builds upon the other osteopathic diagnostic and assessment skills modules in year 1 to explore the application of key clinical skills at a developed level.

  • SHF204 Osteopathic Skills 4

    This module builds upon the other osteopathic skills in year 1 and year 2 to explore, evaluate and consolidate the application of key clinical skills at a developed level.

  • SHF304 Osteopathic Skills 5

    This module builds upon the other osteopathic skills in year 1 and 2 to explore the application of key diagnostic and assessment skills at an advanced level and within the context of people presenting with complex and/or multiple conditions.

  • SHF307 Osteopathic Skills 6

    This module builds upon the other osteopathic skills in year 1, 2 and 3 to explore the application of key clinical skills at an advanced level and within the context of people presenting with complex and/or multiple conditions.
