Pre Clerkship Program

PHASE III: PRE-CLERKSHIP

During the 10 weeks pre-clerkship module, skills, knowledge and attitude required to elicit the history and perform physical examination as a pre-requisite to the clinical management of an individual will be covered. It was constructed to equip students with generic skills (such as communications, history taking and physical examination skills) that will help their subsequent bed-side-learning. Such was supplemented with necessary basic behavioural medicine knowledge as a theoretical pre-requisite and complimented with ethics and medical records (in hard and electronic HIS formats) management skills. The main objective of this section is to prepare the students to start clinical rotations.
