What is the reflective journal for?

This is intended to be the part of the eFolio visible only to you where you can record personal reflections about cases you have seen and your learning journey. Reflection helps you to consider the larger context,  meaning, and the implications of an experience or action; this can help you to make sense of knowledge you have acquired from reading, lectures and other learning situations. We recommend that you get in the habit of reflective learning as a student because it is a component of post-graduate learning portfolios used both in Foundation training and Speciality training.

You can also attach journal entries as evidence in your skills and competencies list.
