Enhanced learning and teaching

The School of Medicine excels at equipping graduates with key clinical skills and experience of practice in a simulated setting.

Human anatomy

Our Human Anatomy Resource Centre (HARC), provides unrivalled access to resources to develop understanding of the human body that underpin future procedural skills.

Students have access to anatomical models, prosected human specimens, technology-enhanced learning facilities, and dedicated demonstrators who deliver an exceptional level of teaching. Experiential learning underpinned by theoretical principles and assessment for learning opportunities make HARC a high quality learning experience for students.

Clinical skills and simulation

The Clinical Skills Resource Centre, and centres across the region, develop our students’ confident practice of clinical assessment and procedures. New skills and procedures are introduced in sequence, as the curriculum unfolds across the course.

Our simulation centres develop thinking on immediate patient assessment and team dynamics. This integrated approach to learning makes use of high fidelity manikins, virtual reality displays, and augmented reality to provide students with exceptional learning experiences that ensure they are prepared for practice in a busy clinical environment.

Clinical leadership

We are proud of our unique approach to preparing students for their role as leaders within the health service. Working in partnership with the army, we provide students with experiential learning opportunities outside of the traditional healthcare or classroom environment that develop their skills in a variety of contexts.
