This Unit of Study involves placement at a Faculty approved location linked to the veterinary student intern's career interest area. Suitability of locations will be negotiated between the veterinary intern and elective Unit of Study Coordinator. Interns will be under the supervision of an extramural supervisor who will liaise with Faculty, review the aims of the rotation with the intern, and assess the performance of the intern via a standard report form. Interns are expected to fully participate in agreed activities whilst attending the placement, typically taking on the role and schedule of a full time, supervised veterinary associate. The requirements of this rotation include the completion of the following documents: an introductory letter to the placement at least four weeks prior to the rotation; a site contract; learning agreement form; skills report form; and rotation feedback form. During the rotation interns are expected to participate in three meetings with the extramural supervisor and complete a communication task.
intra-semester: 1 x supervisor report (S/U); 1 x written assignment (S/U); 1 x communication task (S/U)
