Learning outcomes for medical students

Guidance document

Home > Learning outcomes > Learning outcomes for medical students

Our learning outcomes for medical students are intended to set a standard for the level of knowledge and understanding of infant feeding that could be reasonably expected of a newly qualified doctor.

The guidance document below introduces the learning outcomes, and makes suggestions for how these can be incorporated into medical students’ undergraduate curricula. Supporting materials such as slide sets, guidance for lecturers and e-learning are planned. While there are no plans to provide full assessment and accreditation for these courses at this time, it is hoped that the learning outcomes will provide a stimulus to universities to start to consider what should be covered in relevant curricula and then to take action to make that a reality.

The learning outcomes are an expansion of our university programme, building on our success of developing an accreditaiton programme for pre-registration midwifery and health visiting programmes. Find out more about our university accreditation programme.
