LQB504-2 Clinical Physiology Professional Internship

Clinical physiologists perform diagnostic tests and work directly with patients in multidisciplinary teams. Disciplines include cardiac science, neuroscience, respiratory science, sleep science and there are also opportunities for multidisciplinary practice. This multi-component 36 credit point work-integrated learning unit is the core element of the clinical physiology minor and consists of a full-time, intensive unpaid practical placement working in the profession. In addition to developing clinical skils, you will work in the health care sector to develop and apply communication skills, demonstrate professional and ethical practice, infection control, ensure patient confidentiality and privacy and gain an understanding of cultural issues. This unit is designed for students who are aiming for careers in clinical physiology and completion of this unit provides students with the skills and experience required to apply for graduate positions in clinical physiology.
