Teaching

  • PM-139 Human Physiology I

    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 physiological function during two laboratory based exercises.

  • PM-141 Human Physiology II

    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.

  • PM-239F 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. 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.

  • PM-344 Capstone Project

    The aim of this module is to provide a capstone experience to studentsÂż learning, through participating in their own enquiry-based research project. Depending on the student's employability strand within the programme, the project may be laboratory, data, or education-based, but it will always involve a research question that is drawn from the literature, focused on a topic relevant to medical science. It will ask a novel research question and involve the critical analysis of research findings. Students will refine their oral and written communication skills to a graduate level through creating an introductory presentation on the project background, and a written dissertation and oral presentation on their research conclusions.

  • PM-349D Doctor as Scholar and Scientist 2

    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.

  • PM-358I Doctor as Scholar and Scientist 3

    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).

  • PM-367C Doctor as Scholar and Scientist 4

    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).

  • PMRM00 Introduction to the practice of Medical Physicists & Clinical Engineers in Health Care

    Provides a broad-based overview of the Medical Physics & Clinical Engineering discipline.
