The unit aims to enable students to make progress towards meeting some of the learning outcomes described in Outcomes for Graduates. The specific aim is to enable students to gain an insight into the patient's perspective as they navigate the NHS for all aspects of their care through a longitudinal relationship with a patient over 18 months. Students will develop the ability to integrate the knowledge gained throughout Phase I of the MBChB course and apply this knowledge to a real life situation, as well as developing the ability to reflect on experiences as a basis for life-long learning.
