Students coming to Leeds Medical School can expect an MBChB curriculum enhanced by the thoughtful integration of the latest research-led advancements in learning technology. Our dedicated Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Team work closely with clinicians, academics, students, patients and carers to develop innovative educational resources that compliment every aspect of the MBChB course.
We engage students with a comprehensive range of educational resources to compliment every aspect of the course – mobile learning, e-Portfolio, simulated learning, decision making careers software, eBooks with quizzes and videos, 360 degree virtual tours for orientation. We aim to maximise learning opportunities regardless of location with content available on and offline in a variety of formats for smartphone, tablet, and PC. Through technology we ensure that students are supported equally on campus and out on placement. We also have many opportunities for students to contribute to educational material for national and international academic audiences including the creation of apps.
