  • PM-140 Anatomy

    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.

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

    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-266 The Cardiovascular System

    Leading on from the first year Human Physiology Module (PM-139), the Cardiovascular Module will introduce and define the fundamental cellular mechanisms that regulate the physiology of healthy cardiovascular function. The Module will describe the processes that allow regular heartbeat and blood vessel function and how perturbations in the systems covered may lead to pathophysiological conditions. There will be an emphasis on experimental approaches used to study the cardiovascular mechanisms described.

  • 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¿.
