Why choose this course?

The aim of this module is to enable students to develop sound knowledge of anatomy and physiology and the way in which deviation from the normal may occur. It aims to enhance the students’ ability to assess the patient holistically using a range of different assessment methods through systematic clinical examination of the patients’ health history and the budy systems.

Through this, students will learn to manage complete episodes of care, working in partnership with others, delegation and referral as appropriate to optimise health outcomes and resources, as well as providing direct support to patients.
