This subject continues the study of integrated medical and social sciences for the
whole human body. The emphasis of this subject is on integrating clinical pathology
knowledge, with an approach to obtaining and interpreting clinical information from
patients. On completion of year 4 the student will be expected to be able to take
relevant and focused histories from patients, examine patients, and seek relevant
clinical investigations. The student will be expected to interpret and integrate this
information with their knowledge of pathological processes.
As this subject is part of a subject chain, a final
standard grade (e.g. P, C) will only be recorded
for each subject after successful completion of all
parts of the subject chain.
