Student Selected Component

Years Two and Three

In Year Two, you will undertake a Student Selected Component (SSC), which you will chose from a range of options. Each option has broad relevance to the core MB ChB curriculum and will enable you to explore a particular topic in greater depth.

Some of the current year two student selected components are listed below (modules offered may vary from year to year) :

  • Introduction to Counselling
  • Mindfulness in Clinical Practice
  • Infectious Diseases and Tropical Medicine
  • Introduction to Research
  • An Introduction to Medical Humanities: Middlemarch by George Eliot
  • Brain Injury from Roadside to Rehabilitation and Beyond
  • Clinical Ethics and Law
  • East Meets West – The Use of Traditional Chinese Medicine alongside UK Health Care
  • Ethics and New and Emerging Health Technologies
  • Global Health
  • Infection - from Bench to Bedside
  • Logic and Knowledge in Medicine
  • Peer Assisted Learning: An Introduction to Medical Education
  • The Medical Mind in Literature and Culture

In Year Three, you have an eight-week period where you will have an opportunity to select an area for in-depth enquiry. Depending on your interest, you could link your area of interest with the SSC option you chose in Year Two.
