Course summary

This module uses ‘problem based learning’ to develop students skills in history taking and physical assessment. The theoretical principles of these topics are delivered all on line (at present) using videos, presentations and interactive sessions. Case studies are discussed which will enable students to analyse clinical information gathered to generate differential diagnoses using clinical reasoning.


Brings theoretical and practical learning together brilliantly. Looking back now, I gained confidence and competence to apply complex skills learnt over 13 to 15 weeks.
