Small group discussions, tutorials and practical workshops will be used to enhance theoretical work and develop advanced clinical skills. You will undertake 15 hours of clinical practice in preparation for your clinical assessment; you will have a named clinical mentor.

You will keep a reflective practice diary and be encouraged to use 'Pebble Pad' as a means of undertaking reflection on practice and a case study. The directed study will include preparation for the clinical examinations and writing up of a critical evidence based case study.
