Dear Juhi Sharma

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request dated 9 January 2013,
seeking information on dementia training for medical students. I am
pleased to provide the following response:

Thank you for your request about teaching and training in dementia that
was requested through York University and relates to medical students.
Medical students at York University are taught within the Hull York
Medical School and that is a joint institution operated jointly by Hull
and York University

You stated that you would like to know some specific details about
dementia teaching and training delivered to current medical students
including format time spent and where the placements are. The response
follows:

Response

Firstly, this is an integrated clinical curriculum from the beginning so
everything is delivered together and many issues, such as dementia, appear
and reappear throughout the course, both deliberately and serendipitously.

I have confined my comments to those teaching sessions which are formally
defined and scheduled; please note this does not represent every
appearance of the subject as it will arise spontaneously in mental health,
care of the elderly, oncology, neurology and general practice settings
particularly.
