Assessments and assessors
Some applicants trained outside the UK will be asked to undertake a practical assessment of their skills: the Assessment of Clinical Performance (ACP).
We will let you know if it is necessary for you to have an ACP.
Assessment of Clinical Performance
This is a practical clinic-based exercise, used to assess an osteopath's clinical performance. You will be asked to manage and treat two new patients as you would in practice. The process is outlined in the Assessment of clinical performance guidelines.
The assessments are held in the UK, at the clinic of an osteopathic training institution in London, and your approach will be monitored by trained GOsC assessors - there is information about the assessors beneath the table below. After you have taken a case history and performed an examination of the patient, the assessors may ask you questions relating to your diagnosis and treatment plan before you are asked to treat the patient.
For further information about the ACP please contact the Registration and Resources Department on 020 7357 6655 x238. The standards against which you will be assessed are the Osteopathic Practice Standards. There is a fee of £910 for the ACP.
