OBJECTIVES - The Elective course provides students the opportunity to further develop knowledge and skills in any discipline in another environment to experience a different pattern of health care delivery. This may be taken in any school or department within the Faculty of Medicine; or in a hospital or medical institution, with a medical practitioner, with a community health organisation or a research facility in Australia or in another country.
Students should make individual arrangements for electives and are advised that some overseas universities, governments, health authorities and/or hospitals require very early applications, accompanied by certification that the applicant is an enrolled medical student of the University who is eligible to undertake the specified term. When making the arrangements, students should specifically request that an appropriate person is willing to act as a supervisor.
ASSESSMENT - Each student is required to produce a report which describes the nature of the work done during the Elective Course. This should be approximately 1000 words in length. The supervisor is also asked to submit a report.
