Teaching will be delivered across a mixture of shared and bespoke core modules. Shared modules are delivered in collaboration with the School of Biomedical Sciences.
Semester 1 – compulsory modules
FMD001 – Molecules to Cells – shared (20 credits)
Introduction to key aspects of genetics, biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology that will underpin your later learning.
FMD002 – Introduction to Human Physiology – shared (20 credits)
Provides a grounding in key aspects of human anatomy and physiology that underpins later learning in pathophysiology, pathology and developmental biology.
Semester 2 – compulsory modules
FMD004 – Interdisciplinary and Team Based Learning – shared (20 credits)
Develops key skills required for working in multidisciplinary teams through encouragement to work with peers to problem solve and manage tasks.
MED001 – Active Life Sciences Learning – bespoke (20 credits)
Introduction to the practical and professional skills required to study medicine; studying anatomy, neuroscience, sociology and psychology, learning about interaction with patients and how to integrate learning from different disciplines.
Two further bespoke modules will run across both semester 1 and 2:
MED002 – Workplace related hot topics in Medicine
Gives a grounding in understanding how the health and community services work, particularly in terms of how people work together in teams to provide integrated healthcare for patients. This module is linked to workplace observations and community projects.
MED003 – Learning Skills for Medicine
Learning how to adopt an independent, managed, reflective and active approach to studying medicine, and scientific communication.

Every undergraduate taught course has a detailed programme specification document describing the course aims, the course structure, the teaching and learning methods, the learning outcomes and the rules of assessment.
The following programme specification represents the latest course structure and may be subject to change:
The modules shown for this course are those currently being studied by our students, or are proposed new modules. Please note that programme structures and individual modules are subject to amendment from time to time as part of the University’s curriculum enrichment programme and in line with changes in the University’s policies and requirements.
In light of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the changeable nature of the situation and any updates to government guidance, we may need to make further, last minute adjustments to how we deliver our teaching and learning on some or all of our programmes, at any time during the academic year. We want to reassure you that even if we do have to adjust the way in which we teach our programmes, we will be working to maintain the quality of the student learning experience and learning outcomes at all times.
