Professional Practice 1 (ORTH5044)


This unit provides opportunities for students to observe understand and apply basic clinical knowledge and skills gained in their foundational units of study, in a variety of clinical and community settings. Student learning and development will be directed by observation of professional behavior and strategies used in clinical practice, and in the performance of supervised skill-based activities with patients/clients. These will be used for both summative and formative assessment. Students will be required to reflect upon the development of their own professional behavior and demonstrate clinical competencies commensurate with their role as a novice practitioner.
