There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


The application of theory and skills learned during the coursework subjects begins during the second clinical placement. Students undertake clinical placement alongside practicing genetic counsellors in a variety of settings and learn through guided practice. Students are expected to demonstrate early development of core skills in genetic counselling, including taking a family history and providing explanations of inheritance patterns. As they did during 96105 Clinical and Community Placement 1, students engage in weekly reflective practice supervision to help transform their clinical experience into learning. Students continue to maintain an e-portfolio to record and reflect on their learning during this subject.
