This subject contains a 20 days Compulsory Workplace Learning component.
Students undertake 20 days (140 hours) placement at a pathology or research laboratory. While on placement students will work with laboratory or discipline managers to identify a current laboratory issue. Students will observe how this plays a role in the day to day running of the laboratory. Students will then present findings and solutions to a panel where their ideas/research and solution implementation will be discussed. Students will learn and continue to build on:
- Communication skills and professional behavior
- Maintenance and promotion of safe work practices
- Professional accountability
- Sustainability in the workplace
During placement students will engage in reflective practice and develop a presentation that will be presented to the lab manager and subject coordinator.
