During the Assistantship, you’re required to complete a 360-degree Team Assessment of Behaviour (TAB) based around professional behaviours. In the second or third last week of the Assistantship period you need to complete 3 TAB forms on the OpenCampus app. One of these forms should be completed by a supervising consultant, one by a Foundation doctor and one by a senior nurse (ideally at band 6 or 7) that you have worked with.

All three TAB forms should be completed before the Assistantship review meeting takes place.
