Modular Credits: --
Embedding medical students into healthcare teams is an effective method to get trainees ready to enter clinical practice. To become a comptetent practioner, students should be exposed to real clinical scenarios, gain experience through deliberate practice under supervision. Clinical embedding provides a safe learning environment, which has been proved to be highly motivating and effective. Clinical embedding is also called "full integration into teams" or "supervised internship"(General Medical Council, 2011). Clinial embedding is qualitatively different from simple apprenticeship, in which the apprentice learns from, and is assessed by a single master. In clinical embedding, trainees learn from the team, and what the student learns and is assessed by is aligned to the curriculum.
By the end of this module, you will be able to:
1. define what is clinical embedding and explain how clinical embedding works
2. demonstrate the operational process of clinical embedding
3. analyze the key issues in facilitating successful clinical embedding experience
This module includes:
1. Core readings on clinical embedding
2. Powerpoint slides on Clinical Embedding
3. Videos on "What & Why on Clinical Embedding", "Operational Process of Clinical Embedding", and "Key Issues in Facilitating Clinical Embedding."
