Assessment during Advanced Training

Competency is achieved through an incremental process of learning and development. The programme of learning is primarily rooted in both experiential and adult learning theory, using reflective learning practices. It will utilise an apprenticeship model of clinical learning which promotes intrinsic motivation and development of life-long learning skills.

The overall objective of the training is to ensure competence in skills, knowledge and attitudes in sexual and reproductive health, which will involve both personal and public health perspectives, and allow the graduate to contribute to the development of policy and practice in the field.

New fellows will be expected to demonstrate competency in the skills listed in the detailed curriculum (click below). These will be assessed using a combination of assessment methods including courses and certificates where not directly assessed as part of the advanced training learning requirements. New fellow competencies are assessed in a comprehensive logbook, mini CEX (clinical evaluation exercise) and the six monthly 360 review-informed summative assessment.
