- Learning Outcomes
- To introduce students in a gradual manner to full responsibility for patient care, in a variety of medical disciplines and practice environments, while still under continued academic supervision. The role of the trainee intern is that of an increasingly responsible member of the clinical team. By the end of the TI year, students should be able to contribute to safe and effective patient care with the level of support available to first year doctors, and demonstrate professional and personal attributes (as listed in the graduate profile) to enable them to develop and maintain successful careers in medical practice.
