Third year consists of a programme of tutorials and lectures covering clinical and pathological topics in a systematic manner in combination with clinical teaching in hospitals and general practice(s).
The third year of the programme aims:
To provide learning in the pathology of the major physiological systems involved in disease, to ensure that students have the necessary basic knowledge to make informed diagnostic decisions in their further clinical learning and to understand the principles of therapeutic management of disease.
To provide opportunities to help students develop the communication and clinical skills, and vocational and professional competencies essential for future training.
To provide the opportunity for students to spend five weeks studying a topic of their choice to greater depth, thereby developing skills in data analysis, report writing and oral presentation as well as enhancing biomedical and clinical knowledge.
Lectures engage with the medical humanities and disability studies.
