This unit is designed to complement the theoretical
on-line units in the Remote and Polar Stream by providing the opportunity to
gain a suite of practical and procedural skills that are essential for remote
health care but difficult to obtain with conventional teaching patterns.
Students will undertake practical training in radiography, real time ultrasound, regional anaesthesia, dentistry, and physiotherapy.
