This unit builds on foundational learning gained from MEDI1400 and MEDI2400, extending on the core knowledge and skills that underpin a career in health care as a researcher, manager, or practitioner. In this unit, we will focus on health care and systems exploring a range of topics within the themes of quality and health systems, communication, individual and society, and evidence-based practice. Through this unit you will continue your development as a reflective learner, particularly in applying your learning to clinical practice and research topics.

Grade descriptors and other information concerning grading are contained in Schedule 1 of the Macquarie University Assessment Policy, which is available at: https://staff.mq.edu.au/work/strategy-planning-and-governance/university-policies-and-procedures/policies/assessment.
Further details for each assessment task will be available on iLearn.
All final grades in the Bachelor of Clinical Science are determined by a grading committee and are not the sole responsibility of the Unit Convenor.
Students will be awarded a final grade plus a Standardised Numerical Grade (SNG). The SNG is not necessarily a summation of the individual assessment components. The final grade and SNG that are awarded reflect the corresponding grade descriptor in the Grading Policy.
To pass this unit, students must demonstrate sufficient evidence of achievement of the learning outcomes, attempt all assessment tasks, meet any ungraded requirements including professionalism and achieve an SNG of 50 or better.
All assignments which are officially received after the due date, and where no extension has been granted, will incur a deduction of 5% for the first day, and 5% for each subsequent day including the actual day on which the work is received. Weekends and public holidays are included. No submissions accepted after 10 days. For example:
|Interview video analysis||30%||No||31/3/2021|

Transcription, annotation and written analysis of a video recording of a role play consultation.
Students submit questions (SAQ, MCQ), based on the debate topics and other in-class materials.
Focusing on the topics relevant to the tutorial of each debate week, students complete debates in groups, which are marked on an existing individual and group rubric. As the topics change, students will be meeting at least two of the ULOs.
Students will sit a 1 hour final examination in the exam period. The format will include both MCQ and short answers questions and may draw on the questions developed by the cohort.
