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 will focus on the principles of antimicrobial therapy and development of resistance. This is one of the most important issues facing modern medicine and the module will have a clinical emphasis. The module will provide an understanding of the development, mechanisms and implications of antimicrobial resistance and the principles of appropriate prescribing and antibiotic stewardship, with particular reference to current UK clinical practice. Resistance in bacteria (including mycobacteria) and viruses will be covered. Dry practicals will be used to teach relevant test interpretation.
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).
This module aims to enable participants to explore the assessment processes that they themselves have to engage in, in respect of their learners, and how these relate to other forms of assessment required of those learners.
This module provides an introduction to the principles of effective teaching, learning and assessment, and to the perspectives used to guide educational practice across the various contexts where medical and healthcare professionals are trained. Through engagement in theoretical and practical activities, this module will focus on developing the knowledge, skills and professionals behaviours of the expert teacher.
