Domain 1        Chair Professor. Georgia Guldan                   Credit Points 6


The (paper-based) Patient and Community problems include community health concepts as an integral part of “individual medicine” and written assessments will incorporate these concepts.  Students will also be engaged in environmental health activities and this will contribute to Domain 1 assessment.

Domain 2        Chair – Dr. David Linge              Credit Points 12

Basic and clinical science concepts are intrinsic to study of the Patient and Community problems.  Assessment will be primarily by written instruments (papers).  Problems in the gastrointestinal, renal, cardiovascular and respiratory systems have been considered in year 2.  The first trimester (Block 4) P&C problems relate to the nervous and musculoskeletal systems; in Block 5, problems include those affecting the endocrine and reproductive systems; Block 6 problems relate to the blood and lymphatic system and to the mind.

Domain 3        ChairProfessor. John Vince             Credit Points 6


Tutorials in history taking, physical examination and counselling will be held throughout year 3 and basic clinical skills will be assessed towards the end of trimester 3.  Attendance at scheduled activities is an important aspect of your professional development; unsatisfactory attendance will impact on your marks and grades in Domain 3 and may lead to a requirement for additional activities.  In the latter part of the year, there is a requirement for writing case reports in each of the clinical disciplines.

Domain 4        Chair Professor. John Vince          Credit Points 3


Teaching and assessment will include review of basic computer and information management skills, analysis of biological data, critical analysis of health-related issues and review of papers from the literature.

Domain 5        Chair – Dr. Clare Tomdia              Credit Points 3


Directed own-learning tasks, based on discipline deficiencies identified in year 2, and the own-learning viva following the Group Task, will all contribute to Domain 5 assessment.  Student and supervisor reports on elective 3 will also be a component of assessment in this Domain; late submission of contracts or reports will attract academic penalties.
