MEDIC ST 6018BHO - Medicine Selective VI Part 2

Teaching Hospitals - Semester 2 - 2018

A Selective is a Specialist/Community or Ambulatory Placement. Each Selective is 4 weeks in duration. Students must do a Selective in Medicine, Primary Care, Psychiatry and Surgery. Students must take at least one rural-based Selective (with the exemption of International students who are not required to do a rural placement). Note 1: Students that have already fulfilled their 4 weeks rural total (Commonwealth requirement before graduation) may wish to apply for a rural Selective exemption. Selective selection is from a pre-determined list of available Selectives. Individual "once-off/self-created" Selectives may be negotiated (interstate/overseas) for student's Medicine, Surgery, Primary Care OR Psychiatry Selective. Only ONE self-created Selective may be created in Year 6. The self-created Selective must be approved by the relevant Discipline before it can be accepted. Note 2: Some students may be required to complete a directed elective in place of their Medicine or Surgery Selective, based on decisions made at the Year 5 Board of Examiners.

  • Student Feedback

    The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.

    SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

    The MBBS Program has a regular program of evaluation.  In addition, student representatives are appointed to MBBS committees and are encouraged to report on issues of importance to students.
  • Student Support
  • Policies & Guidelines
  • Fraud Awareness

    Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
