Program Learning Outcomes Statement

A graduate from this 4 year program will be able to apply knowledge and skills in a range of diagnostic procedures in a clinical pathology laboratory. You will develop problem solving, interpretative and critical thinking skills which will encompass considerable depth in your chosen disciplines. As a graduate you will apply a body of knowledge in a specific context to undertake professional work and as a pathway for research and further learning.

1.  Knowledge capability

Demonstrate understanding in appropriate and relevant, theoretical concepts of scientific knowledge with the ability to use and apply the knowledge in a wide range of problem solving, challenging and interpretative situations within the professional laboratory medicine discipline.

2. Technical capability

Ability to apply a range of diagnostic technologies and methodologies relevant to the fields of Clinical Biochemistry, Haematology, Blood Transfusion, Histopathology, Cytopathology or Microbiology.  These methodologies will identify pathological changes which deviate from the normal physiological range, use logical and systematic thinking to solve problems with diagnostic techniques and procedures, and apply high level analytical skills to the chosen area of clinical laboratory specialization.

3.  Professional work practices

Contribute to academic and professional work settings through responsible, self managed, independent work, interpersonal skills which support constructive interactions with individuals and teams, and understand the ethical and legal framework that underpins the field of diagnostic pathology.

4.  Communication skills

Ability to communicate effectively with individuals and groups within the diagnostic laboratory environment, and by using a range of media in professional and academic settings.

5.  Reflective capacity

Ability to relate experiences  to theory, and established work practices to diagnose problems or identify opportunities in a diagnostic laboratory. To develop and test problem-solving strategies within the diagnostic environment. To identify personal skill deficiencies which require further professional development.

6.  Research capability

Determine and critique the credibility of selected sources, information and of data generated/provided, and reflect on the chosen research processes. Organise information and data to reveal patterns and themes. Analyse information/data critically and synthesise knowledge to produce coherent understanding of this data..
