2. Pre-Requisites
Not established
3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

The physical, electrical, manual means and the functional bandages represent a part of the the range podiatric therapies. Therefore, the podiatrist must acquire the necessary skills to apply physical agents correctly and safely in podiatric conditions. In addition, acquiring the skills of this subject will lay the foundations for lifelong learning in this professional field and recover permanent updating to pay adequate attention to society.

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Final test 70.00% 70.00% Final test. Formula established for the score: Final grade = ((Correct answers) - (Errors / 2)) / (Total questions) x 10
Theoretical papers assessment 10.00% 10.00% Reading of scientific articles and preparation of reviews.
Practical exam 20.00% 20.00% Clinical and / or practical cases, workshops and seminars, group work. Attendance is mandatory. Evaluation will be according to the student's performance or excercises for continuous assessment.
Total: 100.00% 100.00%  
According to art. 4 of the UCLM Student Evaluation Regulations, it must be provided to students who cannot regularly attend face-to-face training activities the passing of the subject, having the right (art. 12.2) to be globally graded, in 2 annual calls per subject , an ordinary and an extraordinary one (evaluating 100% of the competences).

Evaluation criteria for the final exam:
  • Continuous assessment:
    The current grading system will be applied at all times: currently, UCLM student assessment regulations approved on May 23, 2022. The global assessment will be based on the weighted average of the assessment systems (Final test, practices and preparation of theoretical works). Students must achieve 40% of the final test grade.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    The current grading system will be applied at all times: currently, UCLM student assessment regulations approved on May 23, 2022. The global assessment will be based on the weighted average of the assessment systems (Final test, practical part and preparation of theoretical works). The practical exam will be done in simulation rooms or laboratory. Students must achieve 40% in each system.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The assessment of the elaboration of theoretical works that have been passed by the student up to a maximum of two academic years from the current year will be kept, provided that the training activities are not modified.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
Evaluation criteria not defined
