Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria As the main objective is to allow students to live in a real clinical settings, their integration in health care
departments, having an expected 1:1 tutor ratio is regarded as particularly relevant in this Hippocratic phase
of learning. They will be involved in departments that have the most prevalent clinical cases
interesting a general practitioner, and so they progressively adapt to a real setting. In addition, students
have other activities that valorize their curricula and personal knowledge (Portfolio) as well as other
activities aiming at upgrading their skills, as a advanced life support course, or one other on good practice
in therapy. Although knowledge development is strategically based on the reference textbook of
medicine, practical performances are not forgotten, and are even evaluated through mini-clinical exams.
