This module aims to provide an understanding of the structure and function of key physiological systems of the human body. Human physiology is the study of how our body works in an integrated way. A central principle of human physiology is homeostasis, the maintenance of a relatively stable internal environment. Failure to maintain homeostasis disrupts normal function that may lead to disease (or pathophysiology). Students will be taught the key concepts of homeostasis in the physiological systems of the body, enabling the student to understand the consequences of pathophysiology to human health. Students will gain practical experience in assessing respiration and cardiac function during two separate laboratory based exercises
This module will provide knowledge of the structure of the human body, and how this adult anatomy develops. It will study human anatomy in a systems approach, focusing on the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, urogenital, and nervous systems. Anatomy is a fundamental science and supports many areas of biology. As such the topics chosen for this module are those most useful to other areas of biological science, and are often clinically significant. This module will use practical classes to study human tissue and will develop the skills needed to dissect and study cadavers. Support materials and laboratory space for self directed learning will be available, including plastic anatomical models, bones and skeletons, and computer based anatomical models.
This module aims to provide students with further understanding of human physiology through studies on systems physiology including the endocrine, renal, blood, digestive/metabolism and reproductive system. The module will equally describe how malfunction of physiological systems gives rise to disease, using specific examples to enable students to appreciate the relationship between physiology/anatomy and medicine. Fundamental principles of physiology will be illustrated with appropriate clinical examples and during practical assignments.
This module provides medical students with the foundation of scientific knowledge, which is required for the practice of medicine. Focusing on the principle of the Doctor as Scientist and Scholar (Tomorrow's Doctors, GMC 2009), this module enables students to develop their scientific knowledge within a clinical context.
This module further develops the student's scientific knowledge, building on the foundations laid in Year 1. Focusing on the principle of the Doctor as Scientist and Scholar (Tomorrow's Doctors, GMC 2009), this module enables students to enhance their scientific knowledge and understanding of its importance to clinical practice within a clinical context.
This module enables medical students to integrate their scientific knowledge and clinical skills in order to apply it within the context of clinical practice, thus enhancing their ability to practice medicine. This module builds on the knowledge learned in the previous years, focusing on the notion of the Doctor as a Scientist and Scholar (Tomorrow's Doctors, GMC 2009).
This module enables medical students to consolidate their scientific knowledge within the context of clinical practice, and prepares them for the Foundation Year training programme. This module builds on the knowledge learned in the previous years, focusing on the notion of the Doctor as Scientist and Scholar (Tomorrow's Doctors, GMC 2009).
