Essential Requirements to pass this subject
To gain a Pass grade (or better) in this subject, students must.
· Complete all assessment items

· Passing assessment item 3
· Demonstration of ‘fitness to professional practice’ through

‘Fitness to practice’ will formally be reviewed for each student at the mid-year and end of year Board of Examiners. If the BOE deems a student a ‘fitness to practice concern’, this will be investigated by the school in accordance with the University ‘fitness to practice policy’ and faculty guidelines. Outcomes may include additional supports and remediation for the student, withdrawal from simulation clinics and/or dental teaching clinics, or it could result in the removal of the student from the subject. If it is deemed that a student has not complied with the professional code of conduct, or the requirements of a registered student practitioner and are operating in any way that risks the safety of patients, other students, themselves, or faculty, they could be flagged and escalated as a ‘fitness to practice’ concern, prior to the Board of Examiners.
