B990 students only. The SBS320(X) modules comprise 6 Biomedical Science clinical case histories at both levels 5 and 6. The case histories will be analysed in group tutorials with subsequent self-directed learning and 6 one hour assessment sessions. The clinical case histories studied will be chosen from a bank of histories and will embrace, over the entirety of the SBS320(X) modules in years 2 and 3, the disciplines of human physiology, anatomy and development, metabolism, molecular biology and genetics and pharmacology. The tutorial will comprise a 1 hour problem analysis and tutor facilitation session. Assessment of the case history will follow a 3 week period of self directed learning founded on the learning objectives defined in the tutorials. The module is examined in SBS320 year 3 and the 2nd year coursework marks will comprise 10% of the coursework marks for SBS320 3rd year.
