In Phase 2, students are allocated to clinical sites to complete their ten core clinical rotations. Each rotation is eight weeks in duration and will give students an introduction to each discipline and a strong foundation which will allow progression to postgraduate training. Students will have the opportunity to submit preferences for their preferred clinical school and rotation order. There are also opportunities for students  to do "away rotations" at sites other than their allocated clinical school, including at UQ partner clinical schools or other international sites to further enhance learning.

Students should familiarise themselves with their program requirements and the Student Charter as well as the expected student conduct on placements.
