Develop your knowledge of pathophysiology and your clinical reasoning skills in the assessment and management of patients with core clinical conditions.
Our module will expand your knowledge of basic medical sciences (anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathology/histology, microbiology, genetics and clinical medicine, etc.) and will facilitate the understanding of pathophysiological processes to support advanced clinical practice.
You'll be taught using a variety of methods including seminars, lectures and enquiry-based learning. Clinical scenarios will also be used to integrate core knowledge of pathophysiology with clinical reasoning skills. This is designed to reflect the presentation of a patient to a senior clinician; your ability to recognize abnormal pathophysiology, to apply this when making a diagnosis and to identify appropriate treatment options.
Your learning will be evidenced through a clinical scenario and viva voce examination. The structured viva voce will assess your ability to analyse and interpret evidence presented to you as part of the assessment task.
You'll be a registered, qualified professional working in a relevant clinical setting and keen to progress your career as an advanced practitioner.
