Helen O?Sullivan: Reviewing the curriculum: An Example from Medicine

About this video

In 2008-9 a full review of the MBChB curriculum took place. The Centre for Excellence in Developing Professionalism was involved in collecting data to support the review and in making strategic sense of the outcomes. It also gave us the perfect opportunity to mainstream much of the developmental work that had been going on in the CETL over the previous 3 years. This presentation will discuss the process that was used to review the curriculum and highlight the outcomes, drawing specifically on issues that may be transferable to other subject disciplines. Interestingly, the main outcomes of the review have not been about content. The key issues have been around how the programme is organised and delivered to the students with the student experience taking centre stage.
