Teaching includes laboratory classes, workshops and tutorials in the Medical School's purpose-built facilities. You learn anatomy and physiology in a state-of-the-art anatomy suite, using full-body dissection and cutting-edge radiological imaging.
You learn in a range of integrated primary care, community and hospital placements. Here you gain vital hands-on experience, develop clinical skills and learn to work in collaboration as part of a multi-professional team.
You also undertake self-directed learning, normally split between university and healthcare settings. This enables you to study topics of particular interest in greater depth and to develop your academic and scholarly skills in disciplines allied to medicine and healthcare.
As a trainee doctor you are required to sit many exams and complete formal and informal assessments. We use a combination of written assessments including essays, short-answer questions and single best-answer questions. We also test your communication and clinical skills through practical assessment methods.
