Unit description

Aims to build on previous experience and to provide students with continued supervised clinical experience in integrated naturopathic practice combining phytotherapy, nutrition, homœopathy and tactile therapies within a student clinic.

Unit content

Whilst in clinic it is expected that students will participate and gain skills in the following areas:

  • Case management - assessment, diagnosis, planning, therapeutic intervention, evaluation
  • Critical review of cases by peer and supervisor interaction
  • Clinic management (dispensary, room monitor, promotional events)

Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
