GSM standing on work experience
The MD curriculum is delivered over an extended academic year, so recess and vacation breaks are an important component in the overall program.
Extensive clinical experiences are offered through out the program and there is no requirement or expectation that students will undertake additional, non curriculum/compulsory clinical experiences in the vacation breaks.
Whilst GSM does not recommend or encourage work experience outside of the curriculum sessions, it acknowledges that some students may choose to undertake work experience during these times.
Should a student decide to undertake work experience, it will be the students responsibility to organise all of the details, including appropriate insurance. Whilst on work experience student will not be representatives of UOW or GSM.
Please note that The University of Wollongong does not consider compulsory clinical placements as work experience, and that any work experience organised independently by a student is not part of the compulsory clinical placement time.
