Our course provides a mixed approach to teaching medicine that suits a variety of learning styles. It is student-centred and flexible, with common clinical problems placed at the centre of learning. There is plenty of reinforcement that allows students to revisit these in increasing detail. Initially these core clinical problems are used to illustrate key principles; subsequently, they allow students to understand how the knowledge of body systems is applied to practical clinical questions. As medical students approach graduation, core clinical problems define the competencies needed by newly-qualified doctors.
