Assessment methods and criteria
Students are evaluated: by a clinical tutor, at the end of each training period through an evaluation card about comprehension and application, about the autonomy of judgement and communication skills.
The card includes the general and specific objectives for each scope and an initial and final evaluation, as well as a space for annotations on the learning path.
The examination of training course consists of a practical test with the use of materials, medical devices and simulations on mannequins.
The final vote is the result of a comprehensive assessment of the practical test and of the opinions expressed in the evaluation of the internship.
