This subject contains a 20 days Compulsory Workplace Learning component.
The WPL component of this subject involves 4 weeks of Clinical Extra Mural Studies (CEMS 1) at different veterinary practices of the students choice across Australia and overseas and precedes 5 weeks of CEMS 2 later in Phase 2, and 3 weeks of CEMS 3 in Phase 3. There are restrictions on the type of practice. Students must contact the placement and organise suitable dates, complete a Placement Request Form which enables the Placements Officer to contact the Practice and send documents relating to the student's level of knowledge, OH & S requirements and assessment forms. Students must find their own way to the practice and organise their own accommodation.
CEMS 1 is part of the compulsory Clinical Extra Mural Studies component required of all veterinary science courses in Australia and New Zealand.
