One or more of these courses have a limited number of places. Priority access will be given to students for whom this course is compulsory. Please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions for more details on this process.
This course will introduce core disciplines associated with the School of Medical Sciences. Through exploration of basic human body function in health and disease, the course will engage students with the fundamental concepts of anatomy, physiology and neuroscience. This will lay the foundation for understanding the general principles of pharmacology, developmental biology and the biomolecular sciences. Discipline specific skills and techniques will be utilised to enhance understanding and to develop broader medical science skills and methods.
This is the total time spent in lectures, tutorials and other class teaching.
1st Attempt: Change marking of 3 lab reports to online tests. Students will complete a paper copy of the lab manual as normal, but students would keep the lab manual and use it to answer questions in a MyAberdeen online assessment. This assessment would be automatically graded with feedback without the need for paper copies of the lab manuals needing to be collated, distributed to markers, collected from markers, grades manually entered into MyAberdeen grade centre, and finally scripts being collected by students.
Resit: 1 two-hour MCQ exam (70%) and previous continuous assessment (30%).
