Small Animal Practice Extramural (VETS5359)

UNIT OF STUDY

The small animal practice extramural rotation builds on skills, knowledge and attributes, developed throughout the entire course and is designed to enable veterinary student interns to gain a holistic understanding and experience of small animal practice prior to graduation. Veterinary student interns are placed at a Faculty of Veterinary Science approved small animal practice of their choice for a one month rotation. During this time interns are expected to negotiate workplace tasks with their extramural supervisor that enable the achievement of learning outcomes linked to the development of graduate attributes. Interns are expected to fully participate in agreed activities whilst attending the practice, typically taking on the role and schedule of a full time, supervised veterinary associate. During the rotation interns are expected to participate in three meetings with the extramural supervisor and complete a communication task.
