The MBChB curriculum has been recently revised to ensure that it remains up-to-date and the introduction of the new course coincided with the opening of the new Suttie Centre. The main features of the new programme are increased integration of basic science and clinical teaching in the early years and the introduction of a Personal and Professional Development thread (PPD) that runs through all five years. Years 1, 2 and 3 of the programme offer close integration of basic science and clinical teaching and the use of clinical cases (case-based learning) to allow students to apply their scientific knowledge in a clinical context.
Teaching is systems based, with the final integration of the examination of all body systems coming in third year.
