In this subject the student experiences the full range of practitioner responsibilities under the supervision of clinical managers and practitioners registered with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (AHPRA). This area of training is accomplished in the premises of the out-patient clinics of the university which provide specific student clinics on set days of the week. The student also has the option of undertaking part of their final year clinical internship overseas in China or Korea with UTS approved institutions. Overseas placement provides students with further direct learning of the different cultural and societal dimensions of health care and its practice in a similar range of clinical contexts as would be experienced in Australia. Students are also expected to undertake reflective tasks evidencing their learning and appreciation for health care in Chinese medicine and may include a series of tutor and peer reviewed case analyses and a learning contract in a specialty area of the student's own choosing.

Students who undertake the option of an overseas clinical placement in China or Korea with a UTS approved institution need to complete their Australian clinic placement via 99669 Clinical Practice 3.

To enter the Year 4 clinic, students must have successfully completed:

  • all subjects in Years 1–3

  • all WIKIs attached to the clinical hours 1–6
