Welcome to Social and Community Medicine 2.

This longitudinal module is a continuation of the introduction to social and community medicine that started in year 1. It will prepare students to understand the basic principles of social and community health care which they will need within the practice of medicine. The module is divided into 5 main sections (Population Health, health systems, social medicine, communication skills, and professionalism) that are further divided into key elements. Year 2 elaborates on different elements of social and community medicine. These will be continued in the practical setting in year 3 and 4. Core topics will be discussed during lectures, interactive tutorials by the trainers and will be studied during self-directed learning, peer education and assignments

I hope you will enjoy the course and make use of the knowledge you will gain from the course.
