The Nursing Practice Act NPA includes the "administration of medications or treatments ordered by a physician, podiatrist or dentist" as part of the practice of nursing. Although PAs are not included in the NPA, the Board recognizes that nurses work collaboratively with PAs to provide patient care in various practice settings. A nurse may carry out these orders.
History[ edit ] The University of Glasgow School of Medicine has a history dating back to its seventeenth-century beginnings. Achievements in medical science include contributions from renowned physicians such as Joseph Lister antisepsisGeorge Beatson breast cancerJohn Macintyre X-rays and radiologyWilliam Hunter anatomy and obstetrics and Ian Donald ultrasound.
In addition to achievements in medical science, the school has produced distinguished literary figures such as Tobias Smollett and AJ Cronin. Robert Mayne was appointed the Professor of Medicine in and held this post until After a lapse of almost 70 years, John Johnstoun MD was appointed in However, the modern School of Medicine did not come into being untilwhen William Cullen was appointed Professor of Medicine.
The School of Medicine and the rest of the University moved from their original location in High Street, to Gilmorehill in the city's west end in This came after nearly 40 years of discussions about the future of the School, which was growing in size and reputation throughout the 19th century.
Inthe School of Medicine introduced a new curriculum. In response to the GMC document 'Tomorrow's Doctors', the new course was integrated and delivered by Problem-based learning. As a result, the most formidable change was the introduction of a course which incorporated all current forms of teaching, moving away from a Problem-based Learning core of teaching.
Students are introduced to clinical scenarios from the beginning of their education. Facilities include areas for developing clinical skills and a fully equipped ward housed in the award-winning Wolfson Medical School Building.
The Biomedical Territory is home to more than academic staff, including approximately clinicians. Curriculum Structure[ edit ] The MBChB programme in Glasgow is based on integration of clinical and preclinical subjects, and on student-centred learning.
The programme is based around vertical themes that comprise the basic disciplines of medicine, such as anatomy and physiology, pathology and microbiology, clinical medicine and clinical surgery. Teaching methods include lectures, tutorials, problem-based learning, practical laboratory sessions and clinical bedside teaching.
The programme has four phases. Phase 1 Phase 1 takes up most of the first semester. This is a broad sweep of biomedical subjects, and early clinical and vocational skills. During this phase the student acquires the fundamentals of biomedical science, and the skills necessary for self-directed learning.
The themes covered in this section include homeostasisbasic anatomy, physiology and biochemistry, and the fundamentals of health and illness in communities. Phase 2 Phase 2 takes up the second half of first year and all of second year. It is a system-based, integrated approach to biomedical sciences and basic clinical problems relating to individual systems.
Phase 3 Phase 3 takes up the first half of third year, during which time the student learns the basics of pathology, covering a speciality a week. For example, a week on G. During this time there are weekly visits to either a G.
This is combined with more in-depth teaching on the principles of medicine and surgery, the pathological basis of disease, and clinical investigation and laboratory analysis, including radiology, clinical biochemistry, pathology and microbiology.
During the summer vacations after third and fourth years the student undertakes two four-week periods of elective study. These are in subjects and locations of choice and are designed to develop individual interests and to experience medical environments other than those provided on the programme.
Phase 4 Phase 4 comprises the second half of year three and years four and five. This is the final part of the programme during which the student is attached to clinical specialities, including obstetrics and gynaecologychild health, psychological medicinegeneral practice, and more specialised aspects of medicine and surgery.
During this phase most of the time is spent in hospital attachments in Glasgow and in the wider West of Scotland, and learning the clinical and practical skills necessary to work as a junior doctor.
Clinical Skills and Vocational Studies[ edit ] Medical students have contact with patients from early on in the medical degree programme. Training in communication and clinical skills starts in Year 1, while vocational studies assist students in the acquisition of professional skills and attributes, standards and behaviour.
School Library[ edit ] The Walton Foundation Library and Resource Area occupies three levels of the building and is open to medical students 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As well as study carrels boothssome with flat-screen computers, students have access video recorders and DVD players for watching Clinical Skills materials, over books including multiple copies of core textsCD-ROMs and Computer-Aided Learning packages.
There are six project rooms. This area also contains Harvey a cardiology patient simulator which can help students to diagnose cardiac abnormalities and Sim-man a life support patient simulator.
In the Vocational Studies Suite medical students can practise consulting in a realistic environment, interacting with actors in the roles of patients.
In addition, there is a resource room with teaching materials and videos.
Consulting rooms are positioned adjacent to small group learning rooms, where their classmates and tutors can observe their simulated consultations on a TV monitor.Sample Medical School Personal Statements.
