Tổng quát về ngành
The undergraduate medical programme is a five-year course leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (M.B.,B.S.). The curriculum, which is an outcome-focused curriculum, aims to lay a firm foundation in the basic medical sciences while providing students with high quality clinical experiences. The curriculum content emphasizes clinical relevance of the basic sciences and early patient exposure from the beginning of the course. Students are also expected to start acquiring competencies related to professional behavior, communication, ethics, laws and information literacy from first year. The first year of the course emphasizes normal structure and function with clinical relevance.
Progressively during the second year, the course focuses on abnormal structure and function including principles of diseases and therapeutics, systemic pathology and pharmacology including physiology of aging, The primary focus of the third, fourth and fifth year is high quality clinical experience in medical and surgical related disciplines with the application of underpinning medical sciences. Students have the opportunity to take electives during this period.
Some of the key highlights of the undergraduate medical curriculum are:
• Early meaningful clinical exposure
• Ambulatory and community care experiences emphasis on developing caring and ethical medical professionals
• Strengthening areas of growing importance
• Devoting significant curriculum time to problem-based learning and small group teaching
• Integrating teaching and assessment to outcomes.
There are several broad-based curricular components in the M.B.,B.S. course:
• The Core content which includes fundamental science and clinical principles, providing a knowledge base essential for the undergraduate to be a proficient doctor.
• Professionalism, Communication, Ethics and Law, Critical Thinking and Information Literacy constitute the Longitudinal Tracks that commence from the very beginning and continue throughout the greater part of the curriculum. These are integrated with the biomedical science components of the curriculum and clinical teaching.
• The Patient-based Programme which starts with guided patient exposure in the first year, allows expanded patient contact in the second year and provides full-day clinical postings in the third through final year. Such intensive bedside clinical instruction and experience help undergraduates acquire clinical knowledge and skills in order to be effective house officers and proficient medical practitioners.
