This Evaluation of Clinical Practice for MSK FCPs module provides a supported route to verification of primary care clinical capabilities. The module’s duration is 6 months but some students, with access to optimal support in their workplace may be able to complete the assessment requirements in less time.
Students will gain overall direction and educational support via their academic supervisor. Each individual student will plan their schedule of learning to meet the learning outcomes, this will be influenced by the personal development plan and clinical incidents, (caseload and critical incidents).
Students will be directed towards academic material and clinical scenarios that relate to the following domains that have been identified as contributing to the knowledge, skills and attributes required for a FCP practitioner:
- Personalised approaches
- Assessment, investigation and diagnosis
- Condition management, interventions and prevention
- Service and professional development
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.
This module will be assessed by completion of one element:
- Portfolio (100% weighting) - Content of the portfolio will be based on a students’ Personal Development Plan and should meet module outcomes 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.
The portfolio requirements will be provided in detail on Moodle with links to templates to be used.
