Elective - MDMP5408

Year - 2020

The Elective Term offers students an opportunity to undertake supervised experience in a health related activity. This may be clinical work in hospital or community settings, research global health or health policy work locally, interstate or anywhere in the world. It is an opportunity to prepare for a particular career direction, explore different experiences or enhance skills in particular areas of a student's own choice. Students usually organise their own Elective Term placements but the Office for Global Health manages around 90 exchange placements for Elective students each year. If advice or assistance is needed students can contact the Electives academic at their Clinical Schools, Director of Electives or the Elective Administrative Officer.

Classes
undertaken in an environment approved by the Head of Clinical School or delegate.

Assessment
This unit will be assessed by the completion of a Pre-Elective Module, the development of personal learning goals, satisfactory completion of the on-line application (including safety protocol), satisfactory supervisor report and submission of an 'Elective Term Report' of approximately 1000 words at the end of the Elective Term

Additional information
To undertake an Elective, students must obtain written approval through the online system from the Electives academic at their Clinical School who has the role of advising, counselling and directing students in their applications and approving Electives.
