Learning outcomes
The Campus to Clinic Course (CtoC) aims to give a thorough grounding in history taking, physical examination and basic clinical assessment of patients. The module will emphasise the central importance of the patient perspective, through development of excellent communication skills and a respectful and caring approach to clinical evaluation of patients from all backgrounds. Other key components of this course include understanding and application of ethical practice in clinical care, inter-professional and team working and CtoC integrates closely with other ICUs in years 1-3, with particular linkage with IDEALS.

Skills outcomes
1) The ability to elicit a clinical history which is thorough yet succinct and integrates the patient's perspective.

2) Competence in clinical examination, taking into account patient dignity, privacy, wishes and concerns.

3) The ability to share mutual understanding clearly and effectively, with patients/carers, medical colleagues and other health professionals.

4) Proficiency in a range of basic practical procedures.


Knowledge outcomes include clinical science, prescribing and informatics; and also consultation, ethical/medico-legal practice and management.

1) Recognises how conditions present in hospital and primary care, with learning facilitated by a series of clinical cases.
2) Demonstrates understanding of the pathophysiology underlying these conditions and how this translates into symptoms and signs.
3) Demonstrates an appreciation of the cause and effect of these conditions in the context of a patients life.
4) Maintains confidentiality, understanding the legal and ethical implications of verbal, written and electronically communicated/stored information.

Private study

Please note that the hours will vary between clinical placement and teaching content. Some of the clinical placements will contain small group (often bedside) teaching. Due to the variability in clinical timetables, the proposal can only illustrate fixed teaching for all students within the Medical School

*Private study is incorporated within programme, and in placements.

Opportunities for Formative Feedback

Students will be required to document progress through an electronic portfolio throughout the entire CtoC strand, with a range of clinical activities, work place learning (and assessment) and feedback. The portfolio will incorporate access to monitoring and tracking of students progress towards the intended learning outcomes as well as a personal developmental progress log (shared with other ICUs and strands in the MBChB programme). Monitoring of progress in this strand will be following the student support model (with local monitoring and feedback from (clinical) teachers and regular meetings with tutors and groups to look at overall progress periodically within IDEALS) and a review of student progression via examination boards and the Student Progress committee, incorporating academic and personal tutoring mechanisms.
