University of Wollongong Phase 3 Student Doctors
We have students in the last 18 months of their medical training, undertaking a longitudinal (38 weeks) integrated clinical placement.
Phase 3 medical students work with and learn from rural and regional medical and health practitioners to gain an understanding of what it means to practice medicine in these communities, developing a high level of clinical competences and develop both personally and professionally.
In general practice and under the supervision of a GP Preceptor, the Phase 3 Medical Students have access to patients in a range of local hospital and community health settings, and experience continuity of care for patients, continuity of supervision by your GP and other health professionals and continuity of curriculum as seen in the real world of clinical practice. The Phase 3 Medical Students have opportunities in acute and chronic health care, interdisciplinary learning and population health.
