Curriculum Innovation Programme

The Faculty of Health Sciences is part of the University's major curriculum reform programme of activity.

The Curriculum Innovation Programme ‘seeks to open up educational experiences that enable our students to exercise choice and to personalise their learning'. We are involved with two new interdisciplinary modules in Health Care Ethics: Theory and Practice, and Global Health.

Health care ethics: Theory and practice

This new module is being designed by a group of academics and education developers from five Faculties: Health Sciences, Law and Management, Medicine, Humanities and Social, Human & Mathematical Sciences. It will run in the academic year 2013/14 for the first time. A blended approach is combined with small learning groups to facilitate student investigations on a topic of their choice. The module team are members of the University of Southampton's Health Ethics and Law (HEAL) group and the Clinical Ethics and Law group (CELS) 

Developing world agenda

This new interdisciplinary module will run for the first time in Semester 2, 2012/13. It is being designed and validated by a large team from Faculties of Human, Social and Mathematical Sciences, Medicine and Health. The lead contact is Dr Sabu Padmadas, from the Global Health, Population, Poverty and Policy Centre
