Place:

Abstract:

A variety of models exist for clinical assessment of student orthopaedic technologists and prosthetists/orthotists. When included in courses, the final clinical examination can be either be based on specific patient presentations or can be a multi-station examination. Graduates of these programmes must then continue their professional development and often attend short courses to develop specific competencies about special techniques or patient conditions. This symposium will present different models of final clinical examination in depth for prosthetics and/or orthotics including: - examination of students presenting single patient cases - examination of student competencies using a 6 station simulation model - examination of student competencies using a multi-station simulation model - examination of student competencies using the orthopaedic assessment model Further to this, it is generally accepted that graduates need early career support following graduation.
