Assessment
Unaided Work:
Study of the recommended and optional literature for each particular topic of the class, using the recommended literature, training materials and Internet sources followed by their evaluation and practical application during classes. Stand-alone training on simulators and manikins. In order to evaluate the quality of the study course as a whole, the student must fill out the study course evaluation questionnaire on the Student Portal.
Assessment Criteria:
Systematic testing of theoretical knowledge during classes. At the end of the study course, the OSCE exam at three exam stations. In order to receive a successful assessment, the student must receive a positive assessment at each of the test stations. If any of the test stations is not successfully completed, the student does not continue taking the exam and receives unsuccessful assessment. The total score of the test is formed by recalculating the points obtained by summing the points from each test station.
