The first three years are systems teaching, then fourth and fifth year is spent on placement in the wards.
There are two lectures every morning, then a two hour tutorial around four times a week. In the afternoon there will be clinical teaching three or four times a week.
Regular afternoons are clinical skills, which is every week, ward teaching which is once a week/fortnight depending on the system, and TBL/GPPC which alternate.
Lectures are given to the whole year, tutorials to your quarter and the afternoon sessions to your eighth. The groups are set, which allows for friendships to build and you to feel comfortable with trying things in wards and clinical skills as you know who you're with.
The course covers everything by systems. The first eight weeks are basic science, when you are introduced to many subjects. Then you go into the system based teaching where everything you learn is relevant to the system. It is during this that you will learn the pharmacology, physiology, pathology, clinical skills, etc relevant to that system. I find it a good way to learn, as everything links together as you learn it.
There is not much coursework. Each year is required to do a set number of patient clerkings and a few short reflective pieces. In GPPC you are expected to do one presentation to your group. Sometimes the group will need to prepare a presentation for the entire year.
Feedback is regular and helpful.
The course facilities are incredible. In anatomy dissection there are groups of four or five to a body, in clinical skills there are simulated patients and dummies that you can set to have specific heart sounds. There is a ward underneath the medical school that is used in simulations to make it more realistic. And, of course, the actual ward teaching itself when you go into the hospital with a tutor to talk to and examine real patients.
