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:
|Simulation sessions||2 hours per week on average|
|While on surgery you will attend a variety of theatres eg general, scopes, orthopaedic (including fracture clinics), vascular, urological, ENT and ophthalmic||minimum 0.5 days / week|
|Emergency medicine||2 days|
|Hospital in the Home||1 day|
|Wound Clinic||1 day|
|Visiting medical specialists in endocrinology and rheumatology||0.5 day|
While your tutorials are provided predominantly by Monash Rural Health Mildura academic staff, specialist consultants also provide teaching in the areas of surgery, cardiology, general medicine, radiology, nephrology, endocrinology, and rheumatology.
