OBJECTIVES: Upon completion of the Medicine course you should be able to:
- apply an understanding of abnormalities in human structure and function to the diagnosis of medical conditions;
- gather clinical data through history and examination and demonstrate clinical reasoning in the interpretation of the data to derive a provisional diagnosis and differential diagnosis in patients;
- formulate a rational approach to the investigation and treatment of medical conditions;
- critically evaluate literature on medical topics;
- demonstrate appropriate skills and attitudes working as a medical student as part of a clinical unit.
Learning will be based primarily on clinical experiences during attachments to medical units in one of the Faculty's clinical schools. There is no prescribed coursework for the Medicine course although the clinical school will arrange tutorials to assist in your learning. During the Medicine course, students will also attend the hospital and campus-based tutorials for the Biomedical Sciences program.
Assessment will include satisfactory completion of the generic learning plan, a written case report or case presentation, observed clinical assessments and an assignment on the quality use of medicines.
