Cardiovascular, Respiratory, Gastroenterology, Surgery and Metabolism - MEDI922

This unit is arranged around a patient-centered contextual approach to experiential learning. Over a 10-week, period students will build their understanding of a range of clinical disciplines integrated with applied medical sciences and the social sciences relevant to health and disease. The unit uses a weekly high-level theme, common across all units offered in that period, linked to a set of unit-specific case presentations, topics or scenarios to provide a central focus for student learning. The unit expands on the students’ clinical knowledge and furthers their understanding of the clinical disciplines of Cardiovascular, Respiratory, Gastroenterology, Surgery and Metabolism. It includes weekly lectures/seminars, case based learning sessions, clinical bedside tutorials, procedural skills sessions, as well as clinical placements with relevant clinical teams. Students are expected to use these learning opportunities to consolidate their medical science knowledge, history taking and physical examination skills, and use real pathology to develop and integrate these to develop clinical reasoning and diagnostic skills.
