Studies in this degree are based around five themes:
In the first 3 years, students will undertake predominantly campus-based learning programs, including lectures, tutorials and practical classes, with exposure to patient contact in a variety of environments. Year 3 will provide the transitional year to clinical settings and Years 4 and 5 will involve the students in a series of clinical rotations including some electives.
- Human health and disease
- Communication and collaboration
- Community health and disease
- Personal and professional development
The curriculum uses a learner-centred approach; specifically it seeks to help students realign their thinking in response to encounters with new information or situations. Teaching and learning strategies have been designed to challenge students to explore their current concepts and develop new thinking.
Another important principle is that of 'situated' learning, which encourages engagement and enhances recall. There will be a focus on regular (weekly) Case Based Learning activities to aid integration and highlight important concepts. Furthermore, patient contact will be introduced in the first year and be experienced in a variety of environments, exposing students to a range of health-care practices with an emphasis on community, particularly rural learning. This experience will produce graduates with the flexibility to adapt to a range of health-care environments in their future careers. Learning in conjunction with other health professionals will be encouraged, to assist graduates develop team skills and foster a multi-disciplinary approach to health-care.
Excellent grades in English , Chemistry , Biology and Maths.
