This Unit of Study involves placement at a Faculty approved veterinary practice outside a major metropolitan area in Australia. There will be no restriction of practice type for this placement - i.e. students can attend a small animal only practice, a large animal only practice or a mixed practice, and will have no requirement to engage in large animal practice during this placement. 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 outside major metropolitan areas. During the rotation, students are required to complete a three Case Reports (approximately 3,000 words) and undertake a Communication Task (under local supervision).
