New curriculum to change doctor training in Wales

A new education programme launched by Cardiff University's School of Medicine aims to transform the way doctors are trained and produce more doctors 'who want to live and work in Wales'.

The new curriculum is an important milestone for medical education in Wales and will play a critical role in ensuring the future health of Wales.

Not only will it encourage students to be independent, life-long learners with a strong focus on science within clinical practice, but it will also instil at the heart of their learning, a renewed patient consciousness.

Ultimately, our goal is to modernise teaching with a view to producing world-class clinicians who want to live and work in Wales for the benefit of Welsh patients, and we hope the community-centred learning experience that this curriculum offers will encourage this.

– Professor John Bligh, Dean of Cardiff University's School of Medicine
