New BM Curricula Reviewed and Approved

Published: 1 November 2012

On Friday 26th October, a panel of internal and external members met to review proposed new curricula for the BM4, BM5 and BM6 programmes and the new European BM programme.

The panel was chaired by Dr Chris Stephens, Associate Dean (Education & Student Experience), and included Professor Val Wass, Head of Keele Medical School, Dr Simon Plint, NHS Postgraduate Dean Wessex, and Dr Kate Duffield, an SpR in Anaesthetics and GMC QA visitor. The University was represented by Dr Karen Piggot, Quality, Standards and Accreditation Advisor, Kathy Owens, Head of Professional Practice in Health Sciences, and Sarah Marshall, former Medical Student President.

After a long day, the teams working on the four programmes - including three representatives from Kassel in Germany - were delighted to learn that the new curricula for the existing programmes had been revalidated and the new BM(EU) programme approved.

The newly validated curricula now become the responsibility of the Faculty's Taught Programmes Management Committee and Taught Programmes Assessment Committee which will develop and monitor their implementation and quality.
