In this element of the course, you will spend most of your time in the clinical environment, building upon the theoretical material learned in earlier years and applying it in a practical clinical context. To facilitate your learning, you will be attached to partnerships of consultants drawn from a wide range of clinical specialties.
You will also continue to develop your clinical skills, using them with patients in a supervised environment on a day-to-day basis.
Core Clinical Education includes time spent in Medicine, Surgery (including Orthopaedics) and Anaesthetics and the specialties of General Practice, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Child Health and Psychiatry.
Learning opportunities include attendance at ward rounds, outpatient clinics, multidisciplinary team meetings, operating theatres, diagnostic imaging and laboratory sessions. You will also be involved in out of hours and on-call clinical experience.
