The final clinical placement subject provides students with an opportunity to demonstrate and document their learning and development across the five competency standards that are expected for certification with the Human Genetics Society of Australasia (HGSA). These are communication skills, reflective practice, counselling and interview skills, critical thinking skills, case management skills and professional and ethical practice. Students continue with weekly reflective practice supervision activities, integrating coursework learning with supervised clinical experience. Students continue to maintain an e-portfolio to record and reflect on their learning during this subject and complete assessment tasks mirroring those they will undertake as part of HGSA certification after graduation.
