Courses & Units

Medicine Year 5 - 5A CAM524

Introduction

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 previous 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 approach. 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 CAM524 students receive an IC (Interim Completion) result. The final result for this unit is granted on completion of CAM525.

Note: Students are required to enrol concurrently in CAM524 and CAM525.

In order for students to undertake Professional Experience Placements (PEPs), there are mandatory requirements to be completed before students can enter a PEP venue. These are outlined in the Safety in Practice Agreement (https://www.utas.edu.au/health/professional-experience-placement/safety-in-practice-requirements).
The Safety in Practice Disclosures section requires the student to establish, with the University, their capacity to perform the mandatory functional requirements of the course in which they are enrolled. The Safety in Practice Agreement also requires the student to comply with the UTAS Behaviour Policy, agree to undertake a police (criminal record) check, working with vulnerable persons registration and provide evidence of their immunisation/vaccination status. Students enrolled in the Tasmanian School of Medicine are required to comply with these requirements prior to the allocation of, and participation in, professional experience placements (which includes community engagement activities) and clinical rotations in health care settings. Students who do not comply will not be placed or will be removed from placements and therefore will not meet the requirements of the unit. Further information is available at the College of Health and Medicine PEP website: http://www.utas.edu.au/health/professional-experience-placement
Students who are unsure of the procedural guidelines should seek guidance from the Tasmanian School of Medicine.
