Module - Whole System Molecular Medicine (SBI130)
Clinical experiential learning is the range of activities trainees may undertake in order to gain the experience and evidence to demonstrate their achievement of module competencies and assessments. The list is not definitive or mandatory, but training officers should ensure, as best training practice, that trainees gain as many of these clinical experiences as possible. They should be included in training plans, and once undertaken they should support the completion of module assessments and competencies within the e-portfolio.
Clinical experiential learning
- Work with a clinical team(s) to identify current knowledge and understanding of specific clinical disorders and reflect on the role of clinical bioinformatics within a clinical service.
- Observe the use of clinical bioinformatics in a range of settings, for example research, industry, or mainstream medicine, and discuss the impact of clinical bioinformatics on the prevention and treatment of disease, identifying your learning needs and developing an action plan to address them.
- Based on your clinical experiential learning, discuss with your training officer how to bridge the potential gap between molecular medicine and clinical medicine.
- Attend a local research meeting and present and defend the service development you have proposed, reflecting and responding to feedback from colleagues.
