Welcome to the Health Sciences Professional Readiness modules.
This is a Health Science Professional Readiness series of modules which have been requested by the Discipline leader for Health Sciences.
There is strong evidence for the value provided by professional placement programs for university students including enhanced academic performance and employability skills (Wilson,m 2012).
These professional placement modules aim to prepare students well for their university placement programs. They will improve students' understandings of university and employer expectations with regard to these placements and mitigate the risk of behaviour which falls short of these. They will encourage students to reflect on their professional identities and develop an awareness of the learning opportunities inherent in these placements.
These modules align with USQs Graduate Attributes.
