This unit is an integrated Clinical Placement year. Students are placed in a range of clinical attachments. Student learning outcomes are organised to deliver the Australian Medical Council, AMC, medical student outcomes. This unit is integrated with the programme in the following year of the course. Case based learning sessions will cover core clinical issues and will be delivered by a mixture of learning opportunities and will require a self-directed learning approaches. The MBBS curriculum uses the AMC 4 domains as an organising principle under which the outcomes are assessed. The 4 domains are: Science and Scholarship (the medical graduate as scientist and scholar), Clinical Practice (the medical graduate as practitioner), Health and Society (the medical graduate as a health advocate) and Professionalism and Leadership (the medical graduate as a professional and leader). On completion of CAM418 students receive an IC (Interim Completion) result. A final result is granted on completion of CAM419.

Students are required to enrol concurrently in CAM418 and CAM419.

In order to commence workplace learning outside of the University of Tasmania (including clinical placements and visits) students are required to demonstrate compliance with the Faculty of Health and School of Medicine policies relevant to workplace based learning. These include the Police Check Policy and Procedures, Infectious Disease Policy, Code of Conduct and Student Placement Agreement. Students who do not comply with these policies will not be placed or will be removed from placements and therefore will not be able to complete this unit. Students who have not complied or are unsure of the policies should seek guidance from the School.
