Medicine is both a science and an art: an excellent doctor will integrate detailed, up-to-date knowledge of medical sciences with critical thinking and interpersonal skills.
The aim of this course is to extend your knowledge and understanding of cutting-edge medical research and practice equipping students with in-depth knowledge of current advances in medicine and biotechnology. It will take an in-depth investigation in to the most up to date research and best practice clinical skills in the areas of the central nervous system, gastrointestinal system, genomic medicine and medical ethics. The course will then move on to helping students understand the role and function, and undertake a clinical examination of, various structures comprising the central nervous system, with a particular focus on the mechanism of action and function of all the cranial nerves.
Additionally, students will explore the pathophysiology of common central nervous systems disorders and their symptoms and discuss conditions such as ALS, motor neurone disease, meningitis, bipolar disorder and epilepsy.
