Module overview

This module is a synoptic assessment module incorporating all previous modules in the programme and together with the other 3 assessment modules constitutes ‘Finals’. This module comprises Workplace Based Assessment (WpBA) component of Finals.

This includes the Assessment of Clinical Competence (ACC) assessments conducted during each of the following modules: Obstetrics & Gynaecology / Sexual health, Child Health, Psychiatry, Medicine, Primary Medical Care, and Surgery). For students who do not gain exemption in their in-course ACCs, the module also incorporates the assessment during the ACCs at ‘Finals’ along with revision sessions that helps prepare students for this assessment.

In addition, the module includes evidence of certification of competence in a range of Practical Procedures which also includes completion of Intermediate Life Support (ILS) training demonstrating competence in ILS procedures.

The BM programmes are highly contextualised and integrated programmes in which the application of knowledge and understanding, clinical skills and professional practice applicable to medicine are learned through a range of modules none of which are standalone modules and therefore this module should be recognised by teachers and students alike as part of the whole programme. The final year WpBA module in BM final year is studied along with along with 3 other assessment modules (Applied Knowledge Assessment, CPSA, and Data Interpretation and Summarisation. The emphasis of the assessments for each of the modules aligns with the focus of learning for that module, however the integrated nature of the course means that there will undoubtedly be overlap and aspects of the assessment in each module will draw upon learning from modules studied in earlier years as well as modules studied in that year. The final year WpBA module has been purposely designed to assess learning outcomes covered in any of the clinical modules within the programme.
