Year 5 YR5intro: Introduction to Year 5 and Year Outcomes


The overall aim of Year 5 is to prepare you to be a competent newly qualified doctor. You should consolidate your knowledge and take responsibility, under supervision, for patient care (including your own allocation of named in-patients whom you should look after and see daily, as if you were their FY1).

In Year 5, we expect you to:

 - Integrate the knowledge, skills and attitudes that you have acquired across the Systems during the previous 4 Stages;

 - Recognise and manage common life-threatening conditions;

 - Develop an understanding of the work of other health professionals through a co-operative approach to care in an inter-professional setting;

 - Experience medicine through a five-week elective.
