Course descriptionThis is a key vertical element that deals with many of the central vocational aspects of medical training. It is based principally on the acquisition of skills, competencies, attributes and attitudes, which will equip the graduate to function effectively as a doctor (Pre-Registration House Officer). It is complementary to the process of attaining high levels of knowledge, and is designed to integrate with other types of learning. There is extensive interaction and integration between the eight themes, including a unified assessment framework. Consultation Skills and Communication Skills will form an integral part of every module in Year 4. The aim is to enhance generic skills and develop skills for special circumstances (for example, exploring issues of sexual health in Genitourinary Medicine).

Summary of Intended Learning Outcomes
The learning outcomes act as a definition of the core curriculum, provide "signposts" to direct students in their learning, and provide a clear and rational basis for assessment.
Assessment Information

- Communication skills with patients will be assessed formally during General Practice attachment, using video recording of consultations
- Clinical skills in Obstetrics and gynaecology/ Renal/ Haematology & Oncology/ Special Clinics Module will be assessed in an end of block Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE)
Some clinical skills will be assessed using Structured Clinical Evaluation Exercises (SCEEs) during or at the end of the attachments. SCEEs may be used for formative and/or summative assessment of skills.
