The 4th Year Hauora Māori Vertical Module comprises three types of learning environments:

The Hauora Māori vertical module comprises of the following learning environments:

  • Immersed Learning introduces you to the core Māori health knowledge which underpins the Hauora Māori vertical module in 4th Year training. It will occur during the “Module 1: Introduction to Hauora Māori Clinical Years” (part of the introductory fortnight at UOC). Attendance at this module is compulsory.
  • Integrated Learning places Hauora Māori content within the core attachments of your 4th year. For 2013 this will involve learning modules as outlined in the Hauora Māori timetable which will be available on Moodle. Attendance at all integrated learning modules is compulsory.
  • Self Directed Learning has been scheduled into the Hauora Māori timetable. These times are for students to complete the required components of the Hauora Mᾱori Long Case. There is an expectation within the Hauora Māori vertical module that you will use this time to complete the requirements of the course, including recommended readings.

The Hauora Māori PASAF will record the following

The Formative Assessment is where students are required to pass the assessment.  In the 4th Year Hauora Māori vertical module the formative assessment is:

  • Multiple Choice Question Assessment for HMILB1
  • Hauora Māori Logbook.  It is expected that 4th year students will compile a logbook of a mihimum of 8 patients

The Summative Assessment is where students are required to complete the assessment to a passting standard (60%).  The summative assessment within the Hauora Māori vertical module is measured by the level of achievement students attain in:

  • Multiple Choice Question Assessment which contributes to 25% of the final grade
  • Hauora Māori Long Case (HMLC) which contributes to 75% of the final grade

Professional Behaviours, assessed throughout the year and measured with regard to:

  • Willingness to engage with Hauora Māori content
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the importance of its application to clinical practice
  • Motivation to contribute to Māori health gains
  • Attendance within both immersed and integrated learning sessions
  • Satisfactory completion of the summative assessment
