2018 Cohort MD153 (18/19)

The GMC requires Medical Schools to allocate approximately 10% of the curriculum to the SSC, with the remainder being allocated to the core. In contrast to the prescriptive, competency-based focus of Blocks within the core curriculum, SSCs provide opportunities to acquire intellectual and attitudinal attributes in preparation for professional life and life-long learning.

2017 Cohort

In Core Clinical Education, you will spend most of your time in the clinical environment, building upon the theoretical material learned in earlier years and applying it in a practical clinical context. To facilitate your learning, you will be attached to partnerships of consultants drawn from a wide range of clinical specialties.

You will also continue to develop your clinical skills, using them with patients in a supervised environment on a day-to-day basis.

Learning opportunities include attendance at ward rounds, outpatient clinics, multidisciplinary team meetings, operating theatres, diagnostic imaging and laboratory sessions. You will also be involved in out of hours and on-call clinical experience.

You should use every clinical experience as a learning opportunity and reflect upon it in order to develop clinical skills, understanding, and performance.

2017 Cohort

During the CCE blocks, students will spend one Friday per fortnight at the WMS Gibbet Hill Campus - the Academic Day. This day will include Case-Based Learning (CBL) sessions around which other learning is structured. Each Case will conclude a fortnight after it commences, allowing didactic teaching, workshops and self-directed learning around the case during the intervening period. Registers will be taken twice during academic days - during CBL and Group work and for lecture attendance.

Fifteen Academic Days will be held throughout the full 30 weeks of CCE, five per CCE block (CCE1, CCE2 and CCE3). Typically, CBL will take place in the mornings and plenary lectures will take place after lunch.
