Skills and learning outcomes
Description of contents: programme
This subject consists of supervised professional work within a company with activities in the clinical engineering sector or in a hospital. The internship must meet two conditions: 1) it must be managed and authorized by the SOPP and the Academic Committee of the master's degree and 2) it must have a minimum of 150 hours of work at the host institution (although the final number of hours depends on the agreement between the student and the host institution). In order to obtain this authorization, the description of the tasks that the student will carry out at the host institution, as well as the knowledge and skills that will be developed in the job, must comply with the learning objectives of the Master's degree. - The number of hours of practice that students will carry out must be at least 150 hours. - The specific content will depend on the post and the host institution.
Learning activities and methodology
For the acquisition of the above-mentioned skills and abilities, the student shall: - Contribute, based on the tasks assigned by the company, to the work of the department where the student is hosted. - Prepare a report containing the activities carried out in the company, paying special attention to the proposals for improvement for the company where the internship has been carried out. - Presentation by the person in charge of the internship of the Master's Degree of the report, made by the company, of the follow-up of the progress, adaptation and quality of the student's work.
Assessment System
The student's final grade will be determined based on two concepts: 1) Activity report prepared by the student (50% of the grade). This document will include the following information: the experience in their practices, the tasks performed, the characteristics of the company and of the position held. 2) Evaluation of the work done by the student by the company (50% of the grade). The person in charge of the coordination of traineeships in the host company will draw up a report on the activity carried out by the student, indicating aspects such as the student's personal attitude and motivation; his ability to work team; their professional ethics; their ability to propose improvements at work; and their ability to communicate by written and oral proposals.
