JCU Inherent Requirements for Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science (Honours) (70309, 70310)
Persons wishing to enrol in the Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science should read these requirements in conjunction with the course handbook.
Students should carefully consider the inherent requirements statement below as a guide to their learning during the course, and as a way to identify early possible challenges they may have in meeting these requirements.
Prospective students who remain interested or engaged in the course should discuss their concerns with College staff, such as the Course Coordinator, as soon as possible. If the challenges are related to a disability or health condition, students should contact AccessAbility Services to discuss possible strategies and reasonable adjustments.
If the inherent requirements cannot be met with reasonable adjustments, JCU staff may provide guidance regarding other study options.
Reasonable adjustments must:
- Be consistent with legislative and regulatory requirements, and not compromise codes, guidelines and policies
- Not result in unethical or unprofessional behaviour
- Meet the necessary standards of timeliness, accuracy and functional effectiveness to ensure that self and patient care, treatment or safety is not compromised
- Address the need to perform the full range of tasks involved in clinical practice, including undertaking learning activities in mixed gender environments, which reflect the Australian context, and
- Ensure that performance is consistent and sustained over a given period.
