PHTY4223: Clinical Practicum E

2024 unit information

The purpose of Clinical Practicum E is to enhance students' perspectives on the role and scope of physiotherapy practice within health more broadly. It is not intended to develop or reinforce hands-on physiotherapy skills but to develop project management and service analysis and improvement skills. Students will be allocated to a community organisation or health service (in groups) to undertake an organisation specific Quality Improvement Project which aims to develop evidence-based solutions to real-life service delivery problems. Students will undertake both independent and group learning and will work collaboratively with an allocated community organisation or health service, and a designated academic to develop and then fulfil an agreed Project Plan. Clinical Practicum E aims to assist students in developing University of Sydney graduate qualities to promote work readiness (e.g., communication, cultural competence, Inventiveness, information and digital literacy and influence).
