CompBioMed in medical curriculum at UCL

The Student Selected Component (SSC) of UCL’s Medical School Curriculum provides an opportunity to educate medical students in Years 1, 2 and 6.
The Skin Microbiome SSC is presently being offered to Year 1 Medical Students. This course provides them with the opportunity to use state of the art laboratory and computational resources to complete a metagenomics project in molecular medicine.
60 students in total – 20 each from years 1 and 2 in 2017-2018 and 20 from year 1 in 2018-2019 have successfully completed the course.
The course was delivered by UCL and the HPC workshop was run by EPCC.
All module resources are placed on GitHub and made available to students via the UCL institutional virtual learning environment, Moodle, and will also be published on the CompBioMed training portal.
