JCU Inherent Requirements for Bachelor of Dental Surgery (73010)
Inherent requirements are the fundamental abilities, attributes, skills and behaviours needed to complete the learning outcomes of a course while preserving the academic integrity of the university’s learning, assessment and accreditation processes.
In addition, students in Dentistry must be able to fulfil the accreditation requirements of the Australian Dental Council (ADC) in order to be registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) as students and on graduation as clinical practitioners.
Students and prospective students must be able to demonstrate that they have acquired or have the ability to acquire the inherent requirements for their degree. Reasonable adjustments may be implemented to assist students to manage additional circumstances impacting on their studies, provided these do not fundamentally change the academic integrity of a degree or are in conflict with the accreditation requirements of the ADC.
