Teaching and learning disclaimer
Following the impact of the pandemic, we made changes to our teaching and assessment to ensure our current students could continue with their studies uninterrupted and safely. These changes included courses being taught through blended delivery, normally including some face-to-face teaching, online provision, or a combination of both across the year.
The teaching and assessment methods listed show what is currently planned for 2021 entry; changes may be necessary if, by the beginning of this course, we need to adapt the way we’re delivering them due to the external environment, and to allow you to continue to receive the best education possible safely and seamlessly.
- Clinical assessment of musculoskeletal conditions
- integration of information from a variety of sources
- Use of laboratory and radiological investigations
- Common and important uncommon musculoskeletal conditions
The assessment has been designed to allow you to explore areas of personal interest or clinical expertise:
- 20-minute subjective presentation (40 per cent). You present a patient you have assessed. This case study is a vehicle to evidence a critical understanding of one component of the subjective examination.
- Portfolio of evidence (60 per cent). This portfolio should total approximately 2000 words and be made up of a number of contributions. The portfolio should contain a compulsory case study (1500 words), a critical evaluation of the role of one component of the objective examination; as well as other components made available during the course.
