Do the same rules apply to digital practicals?
For a digital practical (CPR = computer practical) that is carried out under the direct supervision of a teacher in a practical room at the VU, the same rules apply as for all other practical courses. A digital work form that is done independently and location independently (COO = computer-supported practical) is considered self-study and does not fall under the practical regulation.
I missed one or more 'Course Professional Development' or 'Own study group' practicals, now what?
If you missed one of the other practicals of the Professional Development Course, you can include in your portfolio why this happened. You also explain the relationship between the missed practical and your Professional Development. You discuss this with your portfolio coach at the end of the semester.
To pass a missed 'own study group' practical, you can register on Canvas. Registration is possible after the last regular practical has taken place. If you missed both moments due to special circumstances, please contact the relevant examiner as soon as possible.
I missed one or more 'Internship' practicals, now what?
To make up for a missed 'Internship practical' you can register on Canvas. Registration is possible after the last regular practical has taken place. If you missed both moments due to special circumstances, please contact the relevant examiner as soon as possible.
How are practicals included in the allocation of credits?
The practicals are part of Professional Development, and your presence will be included in your Portfolio as proof. This information, together with the other portfolio documents, forms the basis for the conversation with your portfolio counselor at the end of the semester. It is important that you can motivate the relationship between the missed practical and your Professional Development, otherwise your portfolio may be marked as unsatisfactory. Professional Development is a prerequisite for obtaining the credits for the Physician and Patient courses 1-5. The credits for the Physician and Patient courses are awarded when you have successfully completed the components of this course, i.e. the CAT Physician and Patient, Professional Development and Medical Expert.
Please note: the internship practicals are part of the respective practical internships. Failure to pass / miss an internship placement may mean that you have not fulfilled the obligations of an internship: the consequence can be no allocation of credits.
My Portfolio (PTF test) is signed off as not fulfilled by the portfolio supervisor, what now?
Your portfolio will be forwarded by the portfolio counselor to the Professional Development examiner. The examiner makes an individual decision about the conditions you must meet in order to still receive a pass for Portfolio.
Can I still fulfill the practical obligation by doing a replacement assignment?
No, there are no replacement assignments for practicals.
