The persons should be followed up immediately and the appointment confirmed.
  16. 16.

Dr Snyman ( should be copied on this email.• When a task team returns to the campus, the members return to their original groups, where they will share the information gathered by their respective task teams.• The group will then combine their findings and analyse it in relation to the theory and the learning outcomes.
  19. 19. Written Group Report 1• Each group will compile a written report of not more than 7 pages, excluding the front page, the references and addenda (questionnaire and other material you are of opinion peers/examiners should know).• The report should focus to integrate theory (evidence- based literature searches) with the practical data obtained from the interviews and in the process provide a clear summary in your own words of what a final year medical student should know about the topic.• Harvard Referencing System
  20. 20. Written Group Report 1• The report should be uploaded to Blackboard by 7h30 on Thursday 17 January 2013.• Failure to do so will lead to a 5% penalty per hour. Additional resources for fellow students to study may also be uploaded to Blackboard.• A hard copy of the report should be given to the lecturers before your presentation.• [Please note – the portfolio is not there to impress the examiners, but to help fellow students to learn, and will thus be assessed taking that in consideration!]
  21. 21. Presentations 1• Each group will present their findings to the other groups with the same letter (e.g. Group 1A will present to all the other group A’s, i.e. 2A, 3A, 4A, . . . 10A.) on Thursday 17 January.• Each group has 30 minutes on stage.• The group will have a maximum of 15 minutes to do their presentation.

  22. 22. Presentations 2• The presentations should NOT be a lecture by PowerPoint only and all group members should participate. It should be scholarly and practical, but not theory overload which can be read.• After the 15 minute presentation each team member should reflect for 1 minute on the core competencies he/she developed during the past two weeks and what competencies are still lacking. How do you plan to gain the required competence?
  23. 23. Presentations 3• This will be followed by 10 minutes of discussion involving the larger group, which should be facilitated by a member of the group involved.
