You will undertake a practical driving assessment at Advanced Driving standard if you are suitably qualified. You should be able to pass the practical assessment is you can demonstrate a good overall standard of drive, showing consideration to safety, comfort, vehicle sympathy and compliance with road traffic law.
You will be presented with a clinical case study, where you will need to demonstrate how you would manage the case. This will be presented verbally to the interview panel. The purpose is to show your effectiveness in analysing a given clinical medical problem, determine a working diagnosis, formulate a clinical management plan and describe your clinical reasoning methodology.
