Year 1 commences with the molecular and cellular foundations of life and then guides learning through the first cycle of the body systems, arranged in generations.
This cycle focuses on: introducing the structure and function of discrete organs; psychological basis of normal human behaviour; and sociological basis of the behaviours of populations.
The foundations of an effective practitioner are explored through an introduction to conducting effective observations of people both healthy and ill. This involves the beginning of the development of the understanding of and the skills involved in effective interpersonal communication, group work and collaborative learning.
Collectively, integrated learning opportunities provide the foundations of: awareness of the roles of the doctor and healthcare system; the impact of illness on the patient, their family and society; and the ethical basis of patient-centred health care.
Year 1 also includes an Indigenous focus, with a cultural immersion experience occurring in Semester 2 as part of Bond University’s innovative Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health curriculum.
