- Year 1
Compulsory modules will cover the basic elements of subspecialties, for instance, emergency surgery and critical care including the assessment and the pre-/peri-/post-operative care of the surgical patient.
These modules will be taught and assessed using a clinical problem-based approach, supported by systems-based review of the course material.
- Year 2
Academic modules will explore research and teaching methodology, whilst enabling students to develop the ability to analyse published evidence and enhance their interactive and written clinical communication skills. Students will also have the opportunity to complete an academic research project in Year 2 e.g. Original research or a Systematic Review in a relevant area of work. Following completion of the programme, students are encouraged to seek publication of their study in a peer-reviewed journal.
