CPP word cloud


Integrated Clinical and Professional Practice is delivered though all six years of the MBBS programme and makes up around 20% of the MBBS curriculum and its assessments. The aims of the Clinical and Professional Practice programme are to:

  • understand medicine as an integrated whole
  • understand how theory and understanding of health and disease link to practice
  • make evidenced-based clinical decisions that promote person-centred practice in a rapidly evolving healthcare system
  • integrate knowledge of biomedical and human sciences to enhance your interpretation of the patient’s own narrative, physical signs and social data
  • develop and demonstrate your professionalism through commitment to the duties of a doctor, an understanding of patient safety and the application of ethical and legal principles.

The Clinical and Professional Practice (CPP) ‘Core Values’ aspire to create new doctors that are:

  • Professional
  • Intellectually curious
  • Holistic
  • Entrepreneurial
  • Innovative
  • Non-judgmental
  • Compassionate
  • Smart
