The BM4 course in years 1 and 2 is a highly contextualised and integrated course in which the application of knowledge and understanding, clinical skills and professional practice applicable to medicine are learned through clinical topic weeks in which students learn in a style similar to problem based learning. This module focuses on the “application of knowledge and understanding applicable to medicine” and the assessment predominantly confirms this. However, it is not a stand-alone module and should be recognised by teachers and students alike as part of the whole course which is achieved by this module alongside 2 other modules – Integration of Clinical Knowledge 1 and Clinical Medicine 1. The emphasis of the assessments for each of these modules aligns with the learning for that module; however the integrated nature of the course means that there will undoubtedly be overlap and aspects of the assessment in each module will draw upon learning from all 3 modules.
