Pathology in Practice (NC, 20 Credits)

“Pathology in Practice” represents the final stages of bringing together the knowledge and experience accrued from previous modules (L5) of the Pathology Specialties (Medical Microbiology/Clinical Immunology; Cellular pathology/Haematology/Transfusion Science; Clinical Biochemistry).
You will learn how to examine and assess the clinical symptoms and resulting results and data presented as a case study. As a group of 5 students, your team will decide the appropriate testing regime, in order to reach a diagnosis. This will take the form of preliminary investigations that should point the team in the right direction.
Comprising of group discussions, and guidance from “specialist” tutors in the assessment of demonstrations/practical work, and data acquisition, your team will collectively contribute data, knowledge, and understanding of the test results, to unravel the complexities of the case. Each student should represent a specialty subject and act as leader in that area. Once all test results have been examined, your team will decide the appropriate diagnosis of your patient. Discussions will include any follow up tests that may help in further elucidation of the case. A prognosis will be expected to be given.
The final exercise will be a student led poster presentation of the case study. All members of your group will be expected to contribute and answer questions during the presentation. Peer review is included whereby each student appraises the rest of the team, and awards marks for each person’s contribution.
