This subject will equip the learner to apply an extended set of competencies in one of the extension curriculum areas of the ACRRM curriculum as determined by the student's learning plan developed in MD8001. Students will critically reflect on and audit their own practice, review relevant literature and demonstrate the ability to synthesise and apply findings to their own clinical context. The subject comprises a program of clinical placement and study. (The clinical placement may occur in the student's own workplace if they are able to gain experience relevant to the clinical area applicable to the ACRRM curriculum and will require work based assessment.)
