Credit points: 12 Teacher/Coordinator: Dr Sharon Herkes Session: Semester 1 Classes: On a weekly basis, 1 team-based learning session (total 2.5 hours); up to seven lectures related mainly to the weekly problem (issues raised in the problem are usually relevant to all themes but with an emphasis on basic sciences); two to three Basic and Clinical Sciences Theme sessions (generally 1.5 hours); two Patient and Doctor sessions (up to 1.5 hours) in the clinical school and either one Population Medicine or Personal and Professional Development session (1.5 hours) or a joint session. Students are required to attend 1 full day at the clinical school. Corequisites: MDMP5112 and MDMP5113 and MDMP5114 Assessment: 2 x in-semester examinations and one final examination in Basic and Clinical Sciences based on multiple-choice and extended-matching type questions and two skills-based assessments in Anatomy and one in Pathology. All are summative and attendance is compulsory. Students will also have to complete a required Haematology assessment. A statisfactory grade in the unit of study is based on an integrated total score based on all summative assessments. Mode of delivery: Normal (lecture/lab/tutorial) day
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, and the continuing nature of all scientific.
