One of the general aims of the on-site training component of the programmes is for the student to be given an opportunity to develop a professional approach and identity, and to apply and integrate theoretical knowledge and practical skills.
Before each placement, the programme course coordinator informs the students of the guidelines and goals of the on-site training component of their education.
The on-site training (formerly known as clinical education) takes place in county or municipal hospitals and healthcare institutions, dentists' surgeries or private practices.
On-site training components are assessed against standard assessment criteria established by the programme committee. If you risk failing a clinical course/module, you will be informed of this in writing and orally in good time for you to improve your skills in accordance with a personalised action plan. Any agreements reached between you and your teachers are to be put in writing.
