Clinical Placement 6 provides you with your sixth block of practical experience within a chiropractic clinic. You will work independently while performing as a functional team member using the theoretical knowledge and practical skills developed in the previous five clinical units. You will be expected to demonstrate your increased knowledge and skill by delivering patient assessments and treatments. In addition, you will actively lead clinical decision making and management planning discussions. During this unit you will have the opportunity to have an external placement. The clinical placement experience is a valuable bridge between university and professional practice.
