The paper consists of two modules. Both modules are identical in their structure and differ only in the elective therapeutic area that the student chooses. The availability of therapeutic areas will depend on availability of specialised teaching staff. In each module the student can choose 1 therapeutic area (from a list of up to four therapeutic areas).
All therapeutic areas will follow a modular component and run over the same duration of time. While the content and clinical assessment skills will differ between areas, the generic learning activities and learning outcomes, for example communication skills, care planning and decision-making skills will be consistent developed and evaluated across therapeutic areas.
