Core Clinical Education (CCE)

During CCE you will be taking increased responsibility for your own learning, identifying and monitoring your own learning needs with the help of your student colleagues and faculty team.

  • CCE1 Tuesday 2nd January 2024 - Friday 8th March 2024
  • CCE2 Monday 11th March 2024 - Friday 17th May 2024
  • CCE holiday week Monday 20th May 2024 - Friday 24th May 2024
  • CCE3 Tuesday 28th May 2024- Friday 2nd August 2024

You will have exposure to Medicine, Surgery and Specialties blocks (including Anaesthetics, Psychiatry, Child Health, Obstetrics & Gynaecology) and General Practice.

You will be based in two of the following Trusts / Hospitals:

You will change clinical placement base when you start CCE2, however you will remain in the same trust for CCE2 & CCE3.

The emphasis is on developing core clinical skills in history taking, examination, investigations and initial / basic patient management.

While it is expected that every clinical case will involve discussion about history, examination, differential diagnosis, investigation and management, each 10-week block will have a slightly different focus.
