You should be aware that the majority of your knowledge should be gained from spending time on the wards; the set teaching is there to supplement this. Be aware that patients and their diseases do not behave as the textbooks imply - in neatly defined categories. Instead they may have many features and presentations that cross systems.


By the time you reach Foundation Year, you will be expected to know about the conditions in this module. The Priority codes give you an idea of their importance:
