Assessment methods

The assessment of learning is structured in two distinct moments:

- a first written test lasting 1 hour, including 3 open questions on the principles that underlie the methods. The written test provides an eligibility for access to the practical test. An unsuitability judgment requires the candidate to repeat the test.

- a second practical test that focuses on clinical reasoning, with the aim of evaluating clinical reasoning and verifying the adequate learning of manual skills.
