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 course 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 attend an afternoon every fortnight in a GP practice. They are facilitated in small groups by a designated GP teacher who remains with the same group throughout the year. Students also spend 4 afternoons per year in the same small groups with clinical teachers at Southampton General Hospital.

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