This module is a synoptic assessment module incorporating all previous modules in the programme and constitutes “Finals”
This module comprises the assessments during Year 5 along with revision sessions that helps prepare students for this assessment. It also includes Intermediate life support training and assessment of competence, and assessment of competence in a range of practical procedures for which students will have been trained within a variety of previous modules.
The BM programmes are highly contextualised and integrated programmes in which the application of knowledge and understanding, clinical skills and professional practice applicable to medicine are learned through a range of modules none of which are standalone modules and therefore this module should be recognised by teachers and students alike as part of the whole year and programme. The Year 5 Assessment and ILS Module in BM YEAR FIVE is studied along with 6 other clinical teaching modules in Medicine, Surgery, Primary Care, a student selected unit, an assistantship module, an elective module; and a 6 months long Personal and Professional Development (PPD) module. The emphasis of the assessments for each of the modules aligns with the focus of 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 modules studied in earlier years as well as modules studied in that year. In addition, the Year 5 assessment & ILS module has been purposely designed to assess learning outcomes covered in any of modules within the programme.
The assessments are synoptic, i.e. it takes an inclusive overview of the BM Programme so far and will involve demonstrating application of scientific and medical principles learnt in previous years in the context of all these types of patient.
