The aim of this first part of the programme is to ensure students have an ability to describe malocclusion and the skills to produce high quality patient records. Students will begin to build their orthodontic knowledge base and develop clinical skills compatible with the clinical progress of their patients. The beginning of the programme is busy with many conflicting demands on students to begin their research and scientific understanding but at the same time build the clinical case load and develop clinical skills.
The aim of the clinical unit is to give the student clinical skills and knowledge relevant to the diagnosis, treatment planning and clinical management of patients.
|Practical skills assessment||30%|
The principles of feedback are as follows:
Feedback should be provided in a timely manner that helps students understand
(i) the marks or grades they have received for work submitted and
(ii) how they might improve their performance in the future.
Feedback should be as personal as possible to the individual student to enable reflection on individual skills and performance.
Students have a responsibility to consider feedback given on their work, to seek to understand it, and to act on it.
