MDMP5426: Basic and Clinical Sciences 8

Involves student attachments to the main medical and surgical ward services and associated ambulatory clinics in the teaching hospitals in the various clinical schools. Students will also have some experience in sub-specialty disciplines, such as Ear Nose and Throat and Ophthalmology. About half of each student's week will be spent directly involved in the clinical activities of the service to which they are attached. A progressive increase in clinical responsibility is expected over the total 32 weeks of these attachments.
