The course gives you an opportunity to meet patients and to learn important clinical skills from your first weeks within the Faculty of Medicine. This is an experience that we find students both value and enjoy.
MiP 1 provides an introduction to clinical medicine and a context for your theoretical learning so that you can see how your learning about body systems and the social sciences applies to the care of patients. Time spent with GPs within surgeries will also help you to understand a holistic approach to health care as well as building your communication skills and teaching you about medical history taking and examination.
Plenary sessions/tutorials will enable you to develop further your skills.
