PHTY71-406: Transition to Professional Practice


This subject sets the foundation for future clinical practice by requiring students to integrate and consolidate knowledge, skills and attitudes developed in preceding subjects. The subject will emphasise the development of skills and behaviours that are essential for learning in a clinical practice environment. Students will demonstrate that they have appropriate clinical judgement, utilise decision making skills and display professional behaviours appropriate for clinical practice settings. This subject focuses on ensuring that students are able to successfully transition from coursework to supervised professional practice and will be delivered across a two-week intensive learning period.
