The course will be delivered using a variety of methods that have been chosen to optimise your learning of clinical theories and skills. All methods have been designed to maximise the level of interaction and engagement with tutors and fellow students.
All modules will be taught on campus via face to face teaching with mandatory attendance. In exceptional circumstances (Covid self-isolation) where students are unable to come to campus we will be offering equivalent interactive online teaching or campus-based teaching at a later date, where possible.
Campus teaching will be delivered in small group seminars within our purpose-built clinical skills rooms in line with current health guidance.
For example, this may include:
- Smaller tutorial groups
- Use of personal protective equipment (PPE)
- Use of standard infection control measures such as hand washing
- Implementing distancing during teaching
- Controlled entrance and exit movement patterns within our teaching rooms
- Controlled mixing of practice groups during tutorials
Clinical placements will be delivered in line with current health guidance and local clinical service restrictions. Every attempt will be made to avoid and minimise disruption to placement provision, but it may be necessary to alter the placement schedule and delay some placements to a later date.
