Royal Colleges

Obs and Gynae

Surgery

Paediatrics

Radiology

Produced Undergraduate Curricula

As have Societies for

Old Age Medicine

Dermatology

CAM

Palliative Care

Integrated Curriculum

Contextual learning

Real life practice

Encourages patient centredness by building an holistic viewpoint

Difficult for students used to programmed lecture courses

Difficult for “ologies” who train in “specialists” to understand and accept

Always open to criticism often voiced to our students “not how we did it!”

GMC doesn’t understand the principles – public health

We have preserved the integrated curriculum:

Believe in university medical education

To prevent a blinkered view of medical practice and medicine as a career

Progression

Aspiration

Achievement

What does it look like from the ground?

Where am I going, will I reach the top, will I lose the race?

Will I be satisfied when I look back?

  • Finding my clinical feet

  • Applying knowledge - min standards

  • Acquiring more knowledge and skills – e-learning, WPBA

  • Starting to think about my future

  • Learning the basics

  • Appreciating medical science

  • Acquiring basic skills – ECE, CSLC

  • Learning how to:

  • Communicate – Comms

  • Interact – Mentoring, MMSC

  • Think and learn - PBL

  • Becoming disciplined

Serendipity

The first noted use of "serendipity" in the English language was by Horace Walpole (1717–1797). In a letter to Horace Mann (dated 28 January 1754) he said he formed it from the Persian fairy tale The Three Princes of Serendip, whose heroes "were always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things they were not in quest of".

Encourage excitement in learning through new experiences

Community learning

Clinical placements

Student Assistantships

Yr 5 GP placements

Current challenges being addressed by curricular development

Why we have a University medical degree

To prevent a blinkered view of medical practice and medicine as a career

Will I lose the race

Will I be satisfied when I look back

Think like a patient

How will I apply my medical knowledge? Where will I work?

Becoming disciplined

Encourage excitement in learning through new experiences

Curricular, extra-curricular

Intercalation

Ensuring medicine remains a degree programme: the attributes we are looking for in future doctors are fostered in a learning as opposed to training environment.

Give every opportunity for students to expand their own horizons in a managed way – PEP, intercalation, and student led extra-curricular activities

Understand the drivers of competitiveness and prevent them reducing opportunity. Replace “unfair” with “exciting”.

We must focus basic sciences more on patients and their needs – psychology, statistics, etc

We have a duty to explain and assist students to understand the needs for “professional behaviour” from day 1 – The era of the Non-Registrable degree has arrived!!!

Imminent Challenges that will influence curricular change in the next 2-5 years

The iPad challenge

When you provide students (and doctors) with almost open access to an electronic repository of information, what do you teach them?

The funding challenge

Reduction in funding in HE and NHS

Take opportunities whilst recognising constraints

The Reorganisation of the Health Service challenge

Where will:

We educate and train our students?

Our students be working and as what when they graduate?

How do we give our students career guidance and support in a world we do not understand?

The generation gap challenge

We need to educate in an environment that is meaningful to Generation Y using Baby Boomers and Generation X

Get all the help you can from Generation Y!!!
