CHIR13004 - Integrated Diagnosis and Management

General Information

Unit Synopsis

Integrated diagnosis and management uses case studies to further develop your critical thinking skills, where you will build on the competencies from Clinical Assessment 1, 2 and 3. The cases to be presented will require you to analyse all data, with the intent of determining a differential diagnosis based on the case history and physical examination findings. An appreciation of the appropriate patient management strategy for each case scenario will also be expected. These comprehensive clinical decision making skills will ultimately strengthen self-reflection.

International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Online Quiz(zes) 10%
2. Written Assessment 40%
3. Examination 50%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).
