Requisite elaboration/waiver:

Students must be employed in a medical laboratory and have the support and permission of their workplace supervisor for enrolment in this subject.


Through laboratory experience, students identify and appraise core workplace issues including laboratory workflows, health and safety requirements, ethical conduct, risk management, organisation and collaborative skills, and record keeping. They also demonstrate their own capacity to work ethically and professionally through the development of a comprehensive Professional Laboratory Portfolio. Students engage in independent learning projects to demonstrate their ability to undertake enquiry-based tasks and effectively communicate their findings. From this, students display their own professional development and understanding of critical workplace practices.

Students should approach their Laboratory Supervisor in the first instance and discuss the requirements of this subject. A letter of support signed by the Laboratory Supervisor and countersigned by the UTS Medical Laboratory Science Program Director is required to enable enrolment.
