In subsequent sessions the participant conducts the consultation while the supervising doctor observes and contributes where appropriate.

Competencies achieved are recorded in a portfolio.

The Clinical Attachment must be completed within 2 years of the Theory and Assessment Component.

It is possible to do the Clinical Attachment in another state, but fee arrangement would have to be made separately by the participant with that state.
