Program overview

In your first year, you immerse yourself in the team-based learning (TBL) environment that will engage critical thinking and reasoning capabilities. In year one you will study six modules designed to provide an introduction to understanding core concepts and principles of medical physiology, provide foundation knowledge and to give the opportunity to test understanding of key concepts. In your second year, you will study four modules in which you will integrate relevant elements of physiology, anatomy, genetics, proteomics, immunology, cell biology, pharmacology and therapeutics. You have the option to take up a work placement as part of your degree course. This is usually done as a 6 or 12-month placement at the end of your second year.In your final year you will put your experience of using TBL toward the spiral development of the knowledge base and will further broaden topics and concepts. You will study three core modules that cover advanced topics in neuroscience, cardiovascular and respiratory and pharmacology and therapeutics. A personal research project allows you to study an area of medical physiology of particular interest to you in detail.
