- The modules in this unit equip students with knowledge relating to fundamental medical sciences in preparation for understanding the normal and pathological structures and processes in podiatry. The unit provides a high challenge, high support educational environment. It encourages deeper understanding and learning and helps students cross the threshold from undergraduate to postgraduate. It also provides a transformative educational environment.
- Students are able to (1) demonstrate clear academic expectations and standards; (2) understand and use the scientific method and a critical approach to evidence; (3) demonstrate the research underpinning present and future knowledge; (4) develop lifelong learning; and (5) integrate knowledge across disciplines and practise holistic dentistry.
- Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) tutorial/laboratory exercises including an essay; (2) a mid-semester examination; and (3) a final theory and practical examination. Further information is available in the unit outline.
