||Availability||Available to all students
|Summary||Management of two patients who demonstrate complex or multi-disciplinary care who have been independently and personally treated by the student with both written-up as two fully-documented case-reports.
Management of two patients who demonstrate complex or multi-disciplinary care will be independently assessed, treatment planned and managed by the student. Two fully-documented clinical case-reports will be assessed independently in both the written- and oral format by two examiners. Equal weighting will be applied to both components of the assessment and grades will be assigned for the operative- and management techniques undertaken, the outcome of treatment and the objective assessment of the case in addition to the verbal defence of the cases and the quality of the presentation and the clarity and relevance of images provided. The viva voce will be conducted by the same examiners and will comprise one structured assessment of two cases.
Students on the Oral Surgery programme will be given a different set of requirements and these will be stated in their Programme Handbook.
