Our web-based virtual learning environment, My Studies, provides you with access to all your learning resources and study support tools, including lecture recordings, presentations, quizzes, interactive cases and case-based tutorials.
MRI, CT and X-ray images are uploaded from the hospital for interactive sessions, and virtual microscopy allows you to study microscopic anatomy and pathology in lectures and at home. Virtual anatomy and live streaming resources are also available to support your learning to allow flexible delivery and maximise access.
Use of mobile devices is encourage to support learning, such as the CAPSULE clincial cases quiz app and an iPad anatomy interface in the dissection lab.
All university campuses and hospital sites have computer clusters (most with Wi-Fi) providing connections to both the university and hospital networks, ensuring you are always in touch with your learning resources.
A web-based online learning programme will continue to develop your understanding of the clinical sciences during your regional attachments.
