Mildura Year 3B

Year 3B is the first opportunity for students to work continuously in the clinical environment.

Year 3B at Mildura is a small cohort of 14 students. The cohort will be split into two groups of seven students and you will be rostered to the disciplines of general surgery and general medicine at Mildura Base Hospital. This will enable you to receive a more ‘up close and personal’ experience and allow you to develop clinical and decision making skills while under the direct supervision of interns, registrars and consultants. The ‘hands on’ learning experience at Monash Rural Health Mildura and Mildura Base Hospital is second-to-none!

During your time in general surgery and general medicine you will be exposed to:
