Candidates for LFFLM Part 2 examinations in March 2021: in view of the current COVID-19 restrictions, there may be difficulty in arranging observed clinical practice in order to complete the COVE, in time for the November 2020 application period.
The modules in the COVE which relate to history taking, the taking of consent for examination, examination technique and communication skills should be observed if possible to demonstrate to your clinical validator how you perform these tasks. If at all possible, please arrange for observed cases where space and personnel allow. Instead of cases in the last 6 months, we will accept observed cases within the last 12 months.
If it proves impossible to arrange for cases to be observed, case discussion with your clinical validator will be acceptable for this year; please include a note explaining why observation was not feasible.
