Integrated Biomedical Problem Solving (IBiPS) is a pilot teaching programme for first and second year students that is offered to colleges. Designed and delivered by GPEG, the course provides horizontal integration and clinical contextualisation of each term’s basic medical science content.
The educational process employed also helps students develop specific learning and problem-solving skills essential for applying basic science to clinical practice.
Led by Dr Rachel Wakelin and Dr Richard Darnton.
Preparing for Patients (PfP) is a programme that provides pre-clinical medical students at the University of Cambridge with early patient contact. The first three years of medical studies in Cambridge concentrate on the science that underlies medicine. Alongside this study, running throughout the three pre-clinical years, students will undertake a programme designed to provide them with opportunities to relate class work to real patients’ experiences of health problems. The programme will also prepare students for clinical study by helping them progressively to develop the communication skills they will need to interact successfully with patients. The 1st year of the course involves clinical experience within the General Practice setting (PfPA).
The PfPA course is led by Dr Yasar Khan.
Information on PfP for current students is held on the University’s Moodle site.
