MBBS years 1 & 2
There are no formal Anaesthesia or Critical Care sessions in years 1 and 2. Anaesthetists teach students (in lectures and physiology practicals) and with preclinical colleagues introduce some core ideas in Pain, Physiology and Anatomy relevant to the patients having surgery.
Some year 1 and 2 students choose to come to the operating theatres and clinics to see how what they've learnt impacts on the real life of patients.
|UCL iBSc 3|
We have two Intercalated 0.5 BSc Modules.
Our award winning teaching team will run clinical and online modules to show how the physiological changes that students have learnt in years 1 and 2 occur during and after surgery, their impact on patients and populations and how as doctors we can best respond. Students will see patients before, during and after surgery and do an on-call with the emergency teams.
Before each lecture or clinical experience, students will do an interactive online module at their own pace, with questions to help them understand the subject. Students will be able to chat to a teacher/mentor throughout the term and of course during lectures.
Students doing the 'Advanced' module need to do the 'Essentials' one first- as the Advanced module builds on the principles and concepts introduced in the first module.
We are applying to start a full iBSc in 2023-2024.
MBBS year 4
We will send the Schedules for UCLH, the Whittington and the Royal Free Hospital.
