The Dental Defence Union (DDU) has today launched its online DF1Success course to support its student dental members taking the Situation Judgement Test (SJT) this November.
The free, one hour e-learning course is designed to offer practical interactive support to final year students, helping to boost their confidence with taking the SJT. It provides sample SJT questions and expert advice from our dento-legal advisers on how to apply dento-legal principles to the SJT.
Areas covered in the DF1Success course include:
- What qualities the SJT is looking for
- Practical tips on taking the test
- Analysing sample SJT questions
Although the SJT has previously been part of the selection process for foundation training, it is even more important this year, as due to the coronavirus pandemic, applications will be ranked based on the SJT score alone.
Sue N’Jie, dento-legal adviser at the DDU, said: “Previously, our face-to-face DF1Success course was extremely popular because we used our expertise to help students understand how to apply dento-legal principles during the assessment process. This new e-learning course enables us to provide the same practical support virtually to our final year dental student members before their assessment in November.”
Debbie Herbst, also a dento-legal adviser at the DDU, commented: “Upon completing the course, not only will members have had experience of answering situational judgement questions but also an understanding of how to apply dento-legal principles to a range of professional situations.”
