This module will help to discover the anatomy of the human body in a systems based approach (cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, musculo-skeletal, respiratory and nervous systems). Anatomy is a fundamental science and supports many areas of biology and medicine. As such, the topics chosen for this module are those most useful to other areas of biological science, with clinical significance. This module will be delivered through lectures and practical classes with demonstrators leading practical and self-studying activities. Support materials and laboratory space for self-directed learning, including prosections, plastic anatomical models, bones and skeletons, and computer based anatomical models will be available.
Doctor as Scholar and Scientist 1
This module provides medical students with the foundation of scientific knowledge, which is required for the practice of medicine. Based on the professional knowledge domain of the GMC¿s ¿Outcomes for Graduates (2020), this module enables students to develop their scientific knowledge within a clinical context.
Neuroanatomy and neurology
Building on `An introduction to Neuroscience¿ this module will combine fundamental neuroscience with clinical neurology to provide a comprehensive understanding of the nervous system in health and disease.
The aim of this module is to provide a capstone experience to students¿ learning, through participating in their own enquiry-based research project, with guidance from an academic supervisor. The project may be laboratory or non-laboratory based, but it will always involve a research question that is drawn from the literature, and focused on a topic relevant to the life sciences. It will ask a research question and involve the critical analysis of research findings. Students will refine their oral and written communication skills to a graduate level through an oral presentation and dissertation on their research findings and conclusions.
Doctor as Scholar and Scientist 2
This module further develops the student's scientific knowledge, building on the foundations laid in Year 1. Based on the professional knowledge domain of the GMC's "Outcomes for Graduates (2020)" this module enables students to enhance their scientific knowledge and understanding of its importance to clinical practice within a clinical context.
This module is for students with an interest in teaching, science communication, and medicine. Students will complete an enquiry-based research project, based within the field of pedagogy or science communication, with guidance from an academic supervisor. Projects may be completed in collaboration with local schools/colleges, community groups, science outreach programmes (e.g. Oriel Science), in clinical/patient settings, or within Higher Education. Students will engage with workshops and digital resources to introduce various themes surrounding pedagogy and science communication to prepare them for their research project. Students will be required to critically analyse their research findings and produce a teaching or outreach activity/resource. Students will refine their oral and written communication skills to graduate level through an oral presentation and dissertation.
Mae'r modiwl hwn ar gyfer myfyrwyr sydd â diddordeb mewn addysgu, cyfleu gwyddoniaeth a meddygaeth. Bydd myfyrwyr yn cwblhau prosiect ymchwil sy'n seiliedig ar ymholiadau, ym maes addysgeg neu gyfleu gwyddoniaeth, o dan arweiniad goruchwyliwr academaidd. Gellir cwblhau prosiectau mewn cydweithrediad ag ysgolion/colegau lleol, grwpiau cymunedol, rhaglenni allgymorth gwyddoniaeth (e.e. Oriel Science), mewn lleoliadau clinigol/cleifion neu ym myd Addysg Uwch. Bydd myfyrwyr yn ymgysylltu â gweithdai ac adnoddau digidol i gyflwyno themâu amrywiol ynghylch addysgeg a chyfleu gwyddoniaeth i'w paratoi ar gyfer eu prosiect ymchwil. Gofynnir i fyfyrwyr ddadansoddi canfyddiadau eu hymchwil yn feirniadol a llunio gweithgaredd/adnodd addysgu neu allgymorth. Bydd myfyrwyr yn mireinio eu sgiliau cyfathrebu llafar ac ysgrifenedig i lefel raddedig drwy roi cyflwyniad poster a llunio traethawd hir.
Completing ethics application - essential steps and common mistakes
Completing ethics application seminar aims to provide basic information and essential steps how to write successful ethics application. Participants will be given an introduction on ethics and the Swansea University Medical School Research Ethics Sub-committee. Attendees will be guided through the blank ethics application form with focus on common mistakes when completing ethics application. This CPD seminar is designed for supervisors of final year students projects, PhD students and other academic staff. All additional material will be provided beforehand and discussed during the session.
This module will review and expand basic anatomical knowledge by exploring some common neuroanatomy pathways and their importance on the wider topics of medical neuroscience, and neurological disease. There will be opportunities to carry out neuroanatomy dissection, work with neurological prosections, and explore how clinical examination and testing can be used to assess the integrity of the fundamental pathways to identify deficits. The module will be delivered via a blend of online e-resources, face-to-face tutorials, cadaveric study and practical lab sessions. As part of the programme there will be opportunities to pursue a dissertation in neuroanatomy
Introduction to the practice of Medical Physicists & Clinical Engineers in Health Care
Provides a broad-based overview of the Medical Physics & Clinical Engineering discipline.
Two days hands on human anatomy for health care professionals
Two days hands on anatomy with cadavers aimed at professionals working in the fields of health care and allied health care. This CPD course will provide an extraordinary opportunity to examine, to explore or to revise anatomy using human cadavers in situ. Participants will be given introductory tutorial on donor system, ethics and safety principles when working with human tissue. Attendees will be engaged in recognizing human tissues and structures to learn about the composition and organisation of the human body. They will take part in practical dissection process under specialist supervision and will be led through each stage of dissection. All materials needed for the course will be provided on the day. The course is designed as practical training and will be held in anatomy dissection laboratory of Swansea University Medical School.
Participants will be exposed to real human body conditions and they will learn and understand laboratory rules when working in human anatomy setting. Two day course will provide an exceptional opportunity to enhance and strengthen anatomical understanding and knowledge using 3D relationships of structures within human cadavers.
