Curriculum Development
Curriculum development

The innovative new curriculum at LKCMedicine was designed at Imperial College London over a period of four years. It involved the assessment and evaluation of existing medical school curricula from the UK and internationally. The team in the London Office of LKCMedicine have responsibility for design and delivery of the curriculum to expert educators in Singapore and retains oversight of ongoing curriculum development as the school grows in size and prominence. 

The team co-ordinates the activities of expert academics and clinicians from Imperial College London in the preparation of curriculum materials, including the creation and editing of 300 narrated powerpoint slides, iBooks, course guides, timetables and more than 3,000 formative test questions. Members of the team collaborate with our colleagues from Singapore using state of the art video conference facilities. In addition, senior members of the team regularly visit Singapore to support the local teaching team in the delivery and development of the curriculum.

Another important function of the London office is to undertake medical education research, and members of the team have presented their findings at conferences in Texas, Prague, Cambridge (UK) and Singapore.

The team reports both research and evaluation findings to senior faculty at Imperial College and LKCMedicine, enhancing the delivery of undergraduate teaching and the development of innovation in both institutions.
