This capstone unit of study will assist students in developing high level diagnostic and management skills relevant to patients with multiple co-morbidities. The majority of the unit will take place in a 6 day residential intensive learning setting. Students will develop a research proposal and write a case report as preparation for this. During the residential block senior clinicians will provide insights into clinical decision making, appropriate use of investigative modalities and patient centred management. Students will present their research propoals and cases in small group discussions with colleagues, facilitated by senior clinicians.
