This is the first of four clinical placement subjects. Students begin to develop an understanding of the work genetic counsellors engage in. The purpose of the first clinical placement subject is to provide students with opportunities to learn through observation of genetic counselling interactions in clinical settings. Observation and participation in community settings provide students with insight into living with inherited conditions. Students engage in weekly reflective practice supervision activities, and maintain an e-portfolio to record and reflect on the contribution of clinical experience to their learning.
