Cultivating empathy and compassion

The School of Medicine believes that to be a good doctor, you need to be a good person. The cumulative curriculum structure provides the ideal learning environment for measured growth, based around intensive study of a limited range of subjects at any one time, with each year building on previous years.

Year 1 Students explore ethical principles and humanism and develop communication skills required of modern physicians, with a particular focus on English language skills for global engagement.
Year 2 Students study the fundamentals of medicine, including basic concepts around the structure and functions of the human body. The second half of the year includes a four-month anatomy module focusing on the complex and fascinating structure of the human body.
Year 3 Students are introduced to pathology (the causes and impacts of illness), pharmacology (the effects of drugs and medicines) and immunology through basic clinical studies, and acquire a thorough grounding in the workings of each of the bodily organs.
Year 4 Through clinical training, students study observation, examination and diagnostic procedures and use the principles of clinical reasoning to distinguish between different illnesses. Students also become familiar with examination techniques involving advanced medical equipment and technology.
Year 5 Students begin to apply their skills and knowledge in key clinical settings including doctor-patient meetings, medical history, physical examination techniques, diagnostic processes and basic medical treatment.
Year 6 Students acquire practical diagnostic and treatment skills in their chosen clinical setting, working alongside a dedicated instructing physician as part of the medical team, while also developing a suitable professional ethos.
