Essentials of Clinical Medicine


  • Module Aims
  •  
  • The module Essentials of Clinical Medicine is designed to underpin the MBChB course by providing an introduction to major topics that feature in the integrated curriculum that occur in Phase I, such as, the nervous system and neurobiology, musculoskeletal system, infection and immunity, respiratory system, cardiovascular system, socio-economic factors affecting health and healthcare, human lifespan and clinical skills. This module will also introduce generic subjects such as anatomical terminology, medical imaging, histology, metabolism (nutrition), early embryonic development, and pathology. It will also provide the essential basic understanding to support student’s knowledge base as they move through Phase I modules.
