Eighteen academics from sixteen universities who are directly involved in organising the education of pre-professional health, medical and nursing students in University Health Clinics (UHS) have met regularly for the past year under the ANZAHPE HTAG umbrella.

The objective is to investigate the extent to which university health clinics support students’acquisition of the desired graduate competencies. In particular, the objective is to strengthen the capacity of curriculum designers in health and medical programs to improve graduate outcomes from pre-professional educational activities undertaken in university health clinics. Through the symposia, we seek to discuss our activities and to gather input from our colleagues.

Our aim is to present our preliminary findings and considerations for discussion.
To this end, we invite senior clinical educationalists, from all disciplines, to confirm or refute our assumptions and to guide our Team as we add value in terms of our intended research activities.

Ideas for discussion:
Presentations during the Symposium will offer a working definition of a University Health Clinic and outline their unique features and educational opportunities. We will outline our list of current research priorities which includes: An exploration of the university health clinical educational environment; clinical and clinical education outcomes; patient case-mix; and quality assurance frameworks. Facilitated discussions will explore the extent to which stakeholders believe the educational opportunities available in UHC are being realised, add to our existing knowledge of enablers and challenges, stimulate interest in partnering or leading research.
