Medical Students
Student Placement

MBBS Selective/Elective

Year 4 Semester 2 (HME402) consists of three rotations: a pre-internship, an ambulatory/subacute selective (now simply known as a “Selective”), and an open elective. During the six-week elective rotation, students may undertake a clinical placement in a wide range of health care settings in Australia or overseas. The elective facilitates development of an in-depth understanding of one field of medical practice, and allows students to broaden their experience through exposure to a different clinical or research environment.

      • Mental Health
      • Agrichemical Exposure – Cholinesterase assessment
