Restricted to students enrolled in M3G
Students must have completed 2 streams of third year professional units and the foundation unit of the third stream
This is a professional experience placement (PEP) unit, undertaken off campus in diagnostic pathology laboratories accredited by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA), or equivalent. Students develop an holistic view of the role of the diagnostic pathology laboratory in the health-care industry, with added focus on professional issues, codes of conduct and ethics, work health and safety and laboratory accreditation. Students are subject to the rules and regulations of the host laboratory, supervised by laboratory staff. This unit, in conjunction with CXA412 and/or CXA425 (Medical Laboratory Placement 1 & 2) comprise a full semester unit weighting with an assessment workload appropriate for a 4th year semester.
