Module overview

The MiP2 course builds on the communication and history taking skills introduced in MiP1 ,to further develop and expand the clinical history . The module also teaches the physical examination of all the major systems , using a variety of methods including working with patients , simulated patients , anatomical models and students themselves. Students spend an afternoon every fortnight with a GP tutor,usually in a GP practice. They are facilitated in small groups by the GP teacher who remains with the same group throughout the year. Students also spend 3-4 afternoons per year in small groups /one to one with clinical teachers at Southampton General Hospital.

To gain experience of interacting with patients and of working in a multidisciplinary team setting in the hospital, students are placed on wards to work several shifts as Healthcare Support Workers ( HCSWs) as part of the nursing team.

Details of these placements will be provided further on Blackboard
