This is a professional experience placement (PEP) unit, undertaken off campus in diagnostic pathology laboratories in New South Wales, accredited by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA), or equivalent. Over a 12-week period, students experience core and specialised areas within a modern diagnostic pathology laboratory. They develop a holistic view of the role of the diagnostic pathology laboratory in the healthcare industry, with added focus on professional issues, codes of conduct and ethics, work health and safety and laboratory accreditation. They further develop practical laboratory skills and learning (by observing and performing) and apply university learning to professional practice. Students are subject to the rules and regulations of the host laboratory, supervised by laboratory staff. This unit comprises a 25% semester unit weighting.
