In secondary care they will be assessed on their case presentation. (30% of total marks).


Student attendance is recorded at each placement. Tutors must inform us at the time of any non-attendance.

Any student unable to attend must submit an Self certificate to the University.

There may be occasions during the year when students have a formative progress test on the Friday after a MedSoc day. Students must attend their placement as usual. If tutors have any concerns about a student’s attendance, behaviour, health etc. they should contact the unit convenor as soon as possible.
