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.
