Instruction

WORKING METHODS
Lectures, literature studies, work in tutorial groups, role plays, individual work, seminars and web-based teaching. Clinical proficiency training and placement.


COMPULSORY PARTS
Introduction to the course, compulsory lectures, timetabled group meetings, seminars, clinical proficiency training, placement, study assignments with written presentation and examination.

Assessment

Examination takes place continuously during the course in the form of written and oral assignments individually and in groups and examination of clinical skills. The assignments are examined during current course based on the guidelines (date and time), that are stated by the course coordinator/examiner. All parts of the course and the written individual final examination must be approved in order for the course in its entirety to be regarded as passed.

Other directives

Student failing examination the first time is allowed 4 re-examinations (= in total 5 examinations). After 5 failed examinations, the student can lose his or her spot in the programme. If special circumstances apply, the programme committee can admit additional examination attempts.

Each occasion the student participates in an examination is regarded as one examination attempt. Submission of a so called blank exam is regarded as one examination.

According to the decision of the Faculty of Medicine (Dnr 3579/98, 3651/98I), the student should hand in a written application to the course coordinator/director of studies to be allowed to participate in an examination a fourth time. Course coordinator/director of studies and student should then together analyse the situation and when necessary offer support actions in order to optimise the student's preparations before examination.

Students who have failed to accomplish the placement with a pass have the right to undergo renewed placement once (DNR 3579/98, 3651/98l). Time for renewed placement is determined case-by-case, based on when teacher and supervisor in placement are available, preferably during the semester. Placement is carried out in cooperation with health care providers, leave of absence can not be granted during this period.
