PHYSIOLOGY INFORMATION - OVERVIEW OF PHYSIOLOGY SESSION

The sessions are designed to improve understanding of physiological and pathophysiological concepts as detailed below. They will consist of seminars, case study discussions, hands-on physiology demonstration and interactive Human Patient Simulator (HPS) demonstrations. The balance of activities in each of the four sessions will vary according to the topic being considered.

Teaching will be delivered by:

  • Dr Eugene Lloyd (course lead)
  • Professor Judy Harris
  • Dr Tony Pickering

Technical support will be provided by:

  • Mr Dave Gee
  • Mrs Clair Tompkins

Teaching sessions will normally run from 14.00 – 17.00 in the AIMS Seminar Centre (in which tea and coffee making facilities are available) and the adjoining School of Medical Sciences Teaching Laboratory Building. Please report to AIMS Reception in the AIMS Seminar Centre (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/fmvs/teach/facilities/seminar-centre/) by 13.50. The entrance to this building is indicated on the map available at http://www.bristol.ac.uk/fmvs/teach/facilities/seminar-centre/

Still having trouble finding the venue? Contact course administrators Helen Cooke (0117) 331 2265 or Sophie Hunt (0117) 331 2278

Entry to the AIMS Seminar Centre is card-controlled, but someone will be manning the door and looking out for the trainees from 1:40p.m. until shortly after 2.00p.m. for every session. If trainees arrive more than 5 minutes late, they may not be able to access the building.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Participants

Compulsory for all CT1s (including LATs).

Availability

Each module for anatomy and physiology is run twice to allow choice for attendance. Please only book one option for each module. Each module only has places for a maximum of 14 trainees.

Registration

Via the School of Surgery website events page.

Objective

Anatomy and Physiology teaching to support learning for ISCP curriculum and for MRCS examinations. Emphasis is given to continuing professional education rather than ‘coaching’ for the MRCS examinations.

Dates

4 anatomy modules and 4 physiology modules are delivered on Tuesdays and it is advised that CT1s ensure that they combine anatomy and physiology teaching sessions. It is recommended that the whole day be taken as study leave.

Organisation

Anatomy and physiology teaching are linked by dates. CT1s are advised to take study leave for the whole day (except for the anatomy module 1 which is not linked to physiology teaching).

Refreshments

Core trainees are advised to bring their own refreshments or to make their own arrangements for food and refreshments during the gap between physiology and anatomy modules. There are numerous cafes and sandwich shops in the vicinity that are easily accessible during the short walk from the physiology venue to the anatomy venues.

Travel

No car-parking arrangements are available at the University of Bristol and surrounding areas are for ‘residents-only’. There are NCP car parks available 10-15 minutes away by foot. Good bus and train links are available to Bristol and the University. Trainees are advised to plan their travel and if coming by car are advised to offer a lift to colleagues. http://www.bris.ac.uk/maps/directions/

Attendance outcomes

A record of attendance will be kept by the Deanery. Attendance details are provided to your Programme Directors and will be assessed at the yearly ARCPs. Certificates will be provided for each module to trainees, who attend, for their portfolio.

Trainee feedback

Trainees will be asked to provide anonymised feedback on each module. This is important for the School of Surgery to ensure that the standards of delivery and content of the teaching is maximized for Severn School of Surgery core trainees in the future.

Non-attendance

Failure to attend a module requires a trainee to complete an explanation form which is available on-line at the School website and is returnable to Chad Elliott (Chad.Elliott@southwest.hee.nhs.uk) at the School of Surgery.
