Programme specification:

Programme Aims:
At the end of the programme students should meet the requirements as laid down by the School to fulfil the standards set by the GMC Outcomes for Graduates 2018

Distinctiveness of the programme:

- Spiral integrated curriculum.
- Patient safety at the heart, recurring theme throughout.
- New IDEALs course (Innovation, Development, Enterprise, Leadership, Safety), is a novel course that underpins the whole MBChB, recognising the challenges and requirements of modern postgraduate practice with a strong emphasis on professionalism and development.
- One of only a few schools to offer ‘wet anatomy’ dissection.
- Clinical integration of all aspects of curriculum with academic clinicians involved from year 1 onwards.

Introduction of RESS - Research Evaluation & Special Studies

- New model for existing SSCs - much more closely related to integrate research & evaluation skills with clinical & science teaching.
- Year 1 includes human body measurement projects linking research, project design, clinical & science e.g. looking at blood pressure measurement, populations & diseases.
- Years 2&3 develop this theme with a series of RESS tasks (e.g. literature reviews) and skills development in managing a ’mini project’.
- RESS will build across year 3 as students plan towards an 18 month project in year 4 & 5 focussing on science, clinical medicine, service development, IT or internationalism etc. Key role to draw on core business in NHS care (translational, service implementation)
Introduction of IDEALS.
- New course that replaces Personal Development, focusing much more on development of ‘softer skills’ required for successful transition through the curriculum and beyond.
- Meshes self and structure.
- Key role in determining and developing notions of self regulation, professionalism, engagement with the course.

Introduction of CARES - Strengthening our existing programme and teaching models - links with community and NHS partners
