This unit of study provides students with an opportunity to practically apply the knowledge and skills they have developed during years 1 to 4. In particular, they will gain experience in livestock and equine practice. Through participation in professional activities students are expected to develop their communication skills with the rural community, staff and colleagues, and gain an insight into the career opportunities of a Rural Mixed Practice. Student 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 associate.
Intra-semester: Assignment/s: Supervisor Report (S/U); Case Log (S/U); Communication Task (S/U)
