The majority of assessment for this unit is based on the completion of a portfolio which will consist of case reports, reflective practice notes, feedback from supervisors, videos of practice and relevant journal articles. The portfolio will demonstrate progressive improvement throughout the duration of the program of study. You will be given formative feedback following observational assessment of surgical procedures. Regular meetings with your supervisor will take place throughout the period of training and targets will be set at regular intervals to inform and improve your clinical practice.
The completed portfolio and workplace assessment will constitute the summative assessment for this unit and final assessment of each unit will be pass/fail. Your clinical supervisor will make a recommendation to the unit convenor / program director. The program director will review the evidence and make a recommendation to the Faculty Assessment Committee. The Faculty Assessment committee will provide a grading recommendation to the Faculty Board for approval.
