10 Year 2 structure monthly GP attachments followed the same week by feedback/jigsaw sessions attachments include clinical skills assessment case following

11 GP placements 1 Pair of students for a whole day Attendance is mandatory once a month 6 placements in total £2124 per pair of students pa Locum payment for training

12 GP placements seeing patients with the GP interviewing patients practical procedures eg, BP, venepuncture using patients to learn - Logbook mini case presentations – for jigsaw longer presentations – Longitudinal clinical skills time allowed for Self directed learning (SDL) internet access helpful Involvement with other parts of practice life: Admin/management/PAMs/GP registrar/Practice meetings will bring their own stethoscopes discuss dress code if necessary


14 Top tips 1.Ask students what case unit they are studying, what clinical skills they have been taught and what competencies need assessing 2.Ask what the next Jigsaw (see next slide) is about and what they are researching for it 3.Make links, where possible, to 1 and 2 4.Offer as much exposure to patients as possible 5.Give them a chance to play an active role in a consultation either by asking questions from the side or offering them your chair at the start of a consultation 6.Explain to the students about what you are asking/examining and quiz them about it 7.At the end of the day spend 15 minutes, ask what they have learned, what questions they may have and give them something to research before your next meeting (and make a note of it!)

15 Patient consent Patients booking for appointments should be alerted to the possible presence of medical students Verbal consent must be obtained before the start of any consultation involving a student a wish not to be involved must be respected Posters, and flyers about PMS student teaching for the waiting area are available from Wonford PMS

16 Home visits is a valuable learning experience and a large part of General Practice Patient consent must be obtained, and recorded, prior to any visits including a student Students should always be accompanied by a healthcare professional or a fellow student after discussion, further visits may be made by the student on their own but must not include any examination of the patient GP remains responsible for any arrangements

17 Feedback/Jigsaw 3-4 Hrs – 1-2 days after GP attachment Groups of 8-10 students Briefing and debriefing, feedback, exploration, reflection Medically qualified facilitators Topic guide available at

20 Assessment at PMS Continuous KSA Knowledge: Applied knowledge test (AMK) Skills: Clinical skills labs, ISCEs (In vitro) Competencies in practices (In vivo) Attitudes: Portfolio analyses (Theory) Judgements: Small group tutors and Placement providers (2 per year)

21 AMK - Applied Medical Knowledge 125 questions in 2 hrs, negatively marked - ¼ mark off for wrong answer clinical vignettes with 5 possible answer stems same exam all years students should follow ‘growth curve’ aggregate scores important try it yourself!!

22 Applied Medical Knowledge – Progress Test

23 Clinical Skills CSRC @ Heavitree Hospital – Open evenings Week 1 of Year 1 Nurses and sessional doctors Examination skills Communication skills Course notes Students use each other to practice on where possible Regular in-house competency testing

24 Clinical Skills Clinical competencies: Summative assessment 4 competencies: Examination of CVS, RS and GI systems and Observed History Mark forms supplied Expect faltering performance, slower than a GP would do it but more extensive with main elements (inspection, palpation, percussion, auscultation: IPPA) present. only 1 attempt in community Remediation in clinical skills in event of non satisfactory performance (student self refers) Keep copies of the assessment grades for this and other community based assessments (Yellow part of triplicate form) Must be attempted before mid-April 2011

25 Clinical Skills – in vivo Remember They are only at the start of Year 2 This is about the process not the detection of physical signs students know when they are to be tested there is a need to strike a balance between what we, as experienced GPs, do and what they have been taught 1 Formative assessment allowed Rest are Summative 1 doctor watching is hard, several doctors watching is intimidating ++

26 CRSC manuals Today, intend looking at the examination of the Respiratory system CRSC manuals Mark sheets

31 Clinical Skills competency assessments Please: 1.If you have 2 students, only examine 1 at a time 2.Fill in the mark sheets and return to Kelly Lewis at the PMS St Lukes site in May 2011 3.Remember that an unsatisfactory mark does NOT mean they will fail the year, but is a clear pointer to a need to improve and they will be assessed again in the CSRC

32 Professionalism (PPD) judgements 2 per year Paperwork sent by locality office (Feb and June) Don’t be afraid to use borderline Remediation with Academic Tutors Contact PMS administration if a student is absent without your prior knowledge – this carries an automatic ‘unsatisfactory’ at the end of year PPD judgement



35 Assessments in Community module Professionalism judgement at end of attachment (summative) Professionalism judgement at end of jigsaw sessions (summative) Summative assessment of clinical skills Concerns made to academic tutor or jigsaw facilitator: Think before giving students benefit of doubt. Lateness / DNA:

36 IT Electronic web based resources EMILY Honorary contracts (Free BMJ Learning!!)
