OBJECTIVES - Upon completion of the Surgery course you should be able to:
- apply an understanding of normal human anatomy and function to the diagnosis of surgical conditions;
- analyse clinical data to formulate a management plan for common surgical presentations;
- evaluate literature on contentious surgical topics;
- demonstrate competency in working as a junior doctor on a surgical team;
- demonstrate proficiency in surgical skills required as a junior doctor
Learning will be based primarily on clinical experiences during attachments to surgical units in one of the Faculty's clinical schools. The exposure to clinical material differs from one unit to another but the core teaching program will provide exposure to the important surgical subjects. During the Surgery 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 and observed clinical assessment.
