The module consists of five online tuition sessions prepared and facilitated by the module lead. The module content is entirely self-directed using Moodle. The module leader will be available to answer queries via e-mail.
Students are expected to complete study independently.
Students will be registered with their appropriate professional body. They will be practicing clinicians within the field of musculoskeletal medicine.
We understand that deciding where and what to study is a very important decision for you. We’ll make all reasonable efforts to provide you with the courses, services and facilities as described on our website. However, if we need to make material changes, for example due to significant disruption, or in response to COVID-19, we’ll let our applicants and students know as soon as possible.
Details of the assessment components and learning outcomes will be published on Moodle separately. A summary is provided below, there are two elements:
- A reflective account which evaluates the tasks completed throughout the module (1000 words), weighting: 50%.
- One case study (2000 words), weighting: 50%.
Students are permitted to submit a maximum 500 word draft of part of their case study for formative feedback. This must be submitted using FASER. Please refer to the postgraduate handbook for more information on the requirements for seeking feedback. A formative feedback form must be completed and submitted with the draft.
Submission via FASER
Feedback on all coursework will be available to students within four weeks of submission. Each assessment must be passed to a minimum of 50%. The final mark will be a combined mark of all the assessment components. A fail in any part will result in a fail overall. A failed component will need to be resubmitted and the mark will be capped at 50%.
