Latest MBBS 2012 Curriculum Overview

22 March 2012

MBBS 2012: Creating Tomorrow’s UCL Doctors - highly competent and scientifically literate clinicians, equipped to practise patient-centred medicine in a constantly changing modern world, with a strong foundation in the basic medical and social sciences

Thank you for taking a look at these pages that relate to the exciting new MBBS curriculum starting in September2012. The implementation team have been working hard to keep everybody informed about the changes that will affect us all, students, teachers, administrators, clinicians and patients.

A curriculum is about more than just a syllabus, it is an orientation  or commitment to a way of addressing learning teaching and assessment. This means that as well as delivering a new integrated and patient centred programme, we need an enduring commitment from all staff, whether NHS or university, to deliver the best student experience, to equip or graduates to thrive in the modern healthcare environment and to meet the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s patients.

If you have been involved in the new curriculum implementation project you may wish to simple see the latest update document.

If you have any comments or suggestions we would love to hear them.

Dr Deborah Gill, Implementaion lead.
