Course summary

This module will focus on developing the student’s history taking, physical examination, and clinical decision making skills, leading to differential diagnoses. Through the process of Problem-Based Learning, the student will develop the skills required to undertake a comprehensive health assessment of a patient. In addition the student’s knowledge of diagnostic procedures, the rationale for using them and the interpretation of results will be explored. This module requires that students identify an appropriate mentor, complete the required amount of clinical hours and attend sessions at King’s College anatomy laboratories.


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.
