dc.description.abstractThis resource provides an overview of the Personal and Professional Development activities and requirements embedded within the eighteen month pre-clinical part of the Graduate Entry Medicine course and the portfolio that students are required to maintain for the duration of the course. The Graduate Entry Medicine (GEM) course comprises two key themes: 1. Basic and Clinical Sciences (BCS) Modules 7 to 9 (GEM year 2) Modules 1 to 6 (GEM year 1) 2. Personal and Professional Development (PPD) Module 2 (GEM year 2) Module 1 (GEM year 1) The Personal and Professional Development modules of the GEM course centre on the concept of professionalism. They integrate basic communication and physical examination skills and encourage you to develop professional behaviour and attitudes and an awareness of how ethical principles underpin clinical practice. These are core skills for doctors and their importance is emphasised by the General Medical Council in the publication “Good Medical Practice”. Areas covered under the umbrella of PPD include: • Early Clinical Experience (ECE) (General Practice visits) – led by the Director of Clinical Skills • Professional Competencies (practical clinical and technical skills) – led by the Director of Clinical Skills • Professional Values (attitudes and behaviour) – led by the Head of PPD Module Codes: A12P1G & A12P2G Year: 2010 to 2012 Suitable for study at: Level 2 Credits: 15 Target Students: Restricted to students registered for the GEM (Graduate Entry Medicine) programme There is a limited number of places on this module.
