Abstract

In the Joint Medical Program (JMP) offered between The University of Newcastle and the University of New England, clinical experience begins in Year 1 and increases throughout the program until Years 4 and 5, where all learning is in a work integrated learning (WIL) setting. For students in Years 1 and 2, 10-20 hours are spent in a WIL setting, while in Year 3 this time increases to eight weeks, and by Years 4 and 5 WIL is full time. Placements occur in both term time and within breaks at both rural and urban settings anywhere in Australia and overseas for some components of the program.
