Basic and Clinical Sciences 3 (GDMP2011)


Upon completion of this module, students will have developed a solid understanding of the structure and function of most body systems (e.g. musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory). In addition, be able to apply an understanding of normal and abnormal human structure, function and behaviour to the diagnosis, management and prevention of health problems. They will also be able to use the best available evidence on outcomes to prevent or cure disease, relieve symptoms or minimise disability and analyse clinical data and published work to determine their validity and generalisability. Students will participate in the generation, interpretation, application and dissemination of significant advances in medical knowledge; and recognise the limits of scientific knowledge and understanding.

Students are required to complete two written summative assessments, based on multiple choice and extended matching type questions. Attendance is compulsory, and students will also have to achieve a satisfactory grade in the summative practical exams in Anatomy and Pathology. At the end of Stage 2, there will be a Barrier assessment that covers all units of study in Stages 1 and 2 except GDMP2025 (this is the same as one of the summative written assessments listed above).
