One of the general aims of the on-site training component of the programmes is for the student to be given an opportunity to develop a professional approach and identity, and to apply and integrate theoretical knowledge and practical skills.
Before each placement, the programme course coordinator informs the students of the guidelines and goals of the on-site training component of their education.
On-site training is formerly known as clinical education. Other terms you may come across are VIL and VFU, Practice Integrated Learning and Practice-Based Education. It takes place in county or municipal hospitals and healthcare institutions, dentists' surgeries or private practices.
On-site training components are assessed against standard assessment criteria established by the programme committee. If you risk failing a clinical course/module, you will be informed of this in writing and orally in good time for you to improve your skills in accordance with a personalised action plan. Any agreements reached between you and your teachers are to be put in writing.
To pass the grade for on-site training, you must fulfil the intended learning outcomes stated in the course syllabus. Examination procedures varies and questions can be answered by the programme.
Attendance, Interrupted on-site training
All on site-training is mandatory. Rules regarding absence can be found in the course syllabus. The examiner may cancel the on-site training if a student shows serious inadequacy in knowledge, skills or approach. Extracts from the criminal records can be requested for on-site training placements that involve contact with children.
For participation in on-site training you will be registered in the administrative system for on-site training placements called Kliniskt PlaceringsProgram (KliPP) as well as in Stockholm County Council’s electronical catalogue (abbreviated EK). You will also be given a unique identification number (HSA-ID).
Information regarding the specific procedures that apply for your programme, as well as contact details of whom to turn to with questions, can be found on the programme website.
JoBSH course and eTjänstekort
All students participating in any form of on-site training must undergo the compulsory online course JoBSH which covers handling of medical records, attitudes/treatment in healthcare, confidentiality and hygiene. When you have passed the course, the eTjänstekort can be issued. It is an ID-card needed for on-site training.
If you are an exchange student without a Swedish personal identity number, you should get in touch with the on-site training coordinator at the programme regarding the JoBSH course, and contact the international coordinator for the application of eTjänstekort.
Students with protected personal data should contact the study counsellor or equivalent regarding eTjänstekort.
If you already have eTjänstekort it is not necessary to get a new card but you must complete the JoBSH course and be able to confirm it with a certificate.
