Upon completion of this module, students will have a developed a solid understanding of the structure and function of most body systems (e.g. Neurosciences, Gastroenterology, Endocrinology). 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 generality. 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.
On a weekly basis, 1 team-based learning session (total 2.5 hours); up to seven lectures related mainly to the weekly problem (issues raised in the problem are usually relevant to all themes but with an emphasis on basic sciences); two to three Basic and Clinical Sciences Theme sessions (generally 1.5 hours); two Patient and Doctor sessions (up to 1.5 hours) in the clinical school and either one Population Medicine or Personal and Professional Development session (1.5 hours) or a joint session. Students are required to attend 1 full day at the clinical school.
Students are required to complete two written summative assessments, based on multiple choice and extended matching type questions. Attendance is compulsory, and students will also have to achieve a satisfactory grade in the summative practical exams in Anatomy and Pathology. At the end of Stage 2, there will be a Barrier assessment that covers all units of study in Stages 1 and 2 (this is the same as one of the summative written assessments listed above).
