Teaching

  • PM-140 Anatomy

    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.

  • PM-254 Doctors, patients & the goals of medicine

    ***A 60% or greater cumulative year 1 average is required to enroll in this module.***This 20-credit module introduces students to the scientific, professional and practical basis for the contemporary practice of medicine within the United Kingdom, and those factors that are likely to influence clinical care in the coming decades. There will be opportunities to consider the relationship that develops between the clinician and the patient, the role of `the consultation¿ within that relationship (e.g. in the sharing of information and in clinical decision-making), and to observe healthcare provision in clinical settings. The module will be of particular interest to those students who are considering joining one of the healthcare professions, including graduate-entry medicine, or whose future work is likely to have a healthcare focus.

  • PM-301 Applying Information in Medicine

    Students during this module explore the way in which decisions/clinical judgments are made by both clinicians and patients, and the importance of reliable information in this process. Sources of such information (available to clinicians and patients) and techniques used to deliver the information are discussed. Students are introduced to the concept of `the consultation¿ ¿ a health-related interaction between a clinician and a patient and then have the opportunity to witness such interactions between healthcare professionals and patients. During tutorials and clinical observation sessions students are encouraged to consider the `human aspects¿ of the `practice of medicine¿.

  • PMCM01 Cardiovascular Medicine

    This module aims to explore the causes, risk factors and treatment of cardiovascular disease: the biggest cause of death in the UK. It will develop students¿ knowledge of the many key factors that contribute to this enormous healthcare issue. It will also demonstrate to students how each risk area is assessed and also the links between the individual risks.
