Many organisations, such as the GMC and the BMA, politicians and medical journals are actively using social media and discussions of various aspects of the professional lives of doctors are increasingly seen on Facebook, Twitter and blogs.Read more...

The upgrade is designed to develop Student HUBS and enhanced teaching space at each of our 3 main campuses. Plans and progress will be published on the UCLMS website as the projects develop at each site.Read more...
Timetable For Rollout
Rollout of the new curriculum has already started! It began when the new-look Final Year was implemented for the 2010/11 Year 5 students which included introducing the regular Case-of-the-Month component. This has continued unchanged for 2011/12’s Final Year students. Some technology innovations were also piloted this year, including the video-recording of lectures as a revision aid for students, and the use of personal response systems in lectures and large group work, to improve interaction between participants. These initiatives have been generally well received.
In 2011/12, we piloted a number of new changes including:
- a new “Foundation Module” introduced to the Year 1 timetable
- a cardio-metabolic disease patient pathway, including extended patient contacts, piloted for Year 2 students
- the use of a computer-based portfolio tool by students in Year 3. The ‘NES’ e-portfolio, which is the tool as used by most Foundation Year doctors, will be familiar to many of those who will participate in the trial.
The full rollout, however, began in September 2012: well….not quite a full roll out!
Unless you introduce changes one year at a time, then you are inevitably going to run into problems when students transfer from one curriculum to another part of the way through their time with us. 2012/13 will have a transitional year 5 (what was old year 4) to avoid student duplicating placements and modules or missing some altogether. So we will have full implementation from 2013/14
