components of the process are evaluated through: periodic knowledge assessment with multiplechoice
questions; Evaluation of technical skills through observation on simulated environment and
clinical environment; evaluation of the activities carried out in a professional environment which
includes the reflective portfolio; Evaluation of professional attitudes through observational tables;
Integrated evaluation of competences at the end of the academic year Demonstração da coerência das metodologias de ensino com os objetivos
