Basic and Clinical Sciences 3 - GDMP2011

Year - 2020

Upon completion of this module, students will have developed a solid understanding of the structure and function of most body systems (e.g. musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory). In addition, be able to apply an understanding of normal and abnormal human structure, function and behaviour to the diagnosis, management and prevention of health problems. They will also be able to use the best available evidence on outcomes to prevent or cure disease, relieve symptoms or minimise disability and analyse clinical data and published work to determine their validity and generalisability. Students will participate in the generation, interpretation, application and dissemination of significant advances in medical knowledge; and recognise the limits of scientific knowledge and understanding.
