How you are assessed

Assessment for this course comes in two parts:

Part A: Direct observation of clinical skills in practice which is verified and assessed by appropriately experienced and competent medical practitioners and/or healthcare professionals in the student's own professional service area through a competence based portfolio.

Part B: Observed Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs). Students will be expected to respond appropriately in a series of mock clinical situations. You will be asked to systematically assess, manage, and escalate your findings within the context of your own personal and professional scope of practice and using best evidence to support your clinical decision-making and rationale.
