Department of Human Services policy - Police Record Check and Working With Children Check

In accordance with Department of Human Services policy, all students are required to undertake a National Police Record Check prior to clinical placements in each calendar year of their course. Students are also required to hold a current Working with Children Check and will be required to declare their immunisation status to satisfy the requirements of health organisations where they will be undertaking their clinical learning experience. A health organisation may refuse to accept a student for placement if the student’s immunisation status is not satisfactory to the health organisation.

Content

HME921 represents Semester 1 of the Year 2 of the Doctor of Medicine (MD) course and consists of a single unit of four credit points. The unit is structured in two blocks, Endocrine and Lifecycle and Musculoskeletal and Metabolism, and within each block the themes of Medical Sciences and Clinical Practice, Public Health Medicine, and Ethics, Law and Professionalism are discussed. Students will also undergo a series of clinical placements in the clinical environment.

Assessment

Assessment in the MD course is designed to demonstrate attainment of competency across all aspects of the course. A series of assessment tasks is therefore undertaken within each block. Students must pass each block of HME921 (Endocrine & Lifecycle and Musculoskeletal and Metabolism) as academic hurdles in order to be eligible for an overall pass grade in HME921.

Further information is available to enrolled students in the Unit Guide and Course Progression Rules.

Note: Assessment in HME921 is an ungraded pass (UP) or Fail (N) grade only
