MSK objectives - created by students for students

Posted by Victoria Langton

For several years, a common issue discussed with Year 4 EdReps is that the MSK course lacks clear learning objectives. The AMSS has tried for several years to work collaboratively with staff to co-create learning objectives that are similar to the MHU student-staff co-created objectives available on Canvas/MyUni. Due to time constraints and resourcing limitations, co-created objectives were unable to be made in 2019. The AMSS hopes that this may be possible in 2020 and will continue efforts towards this. Instead, the AMSS decided to publish a student-created document that meets the needs as identified by students. The AMSS hopes this document provides useful guidance and highlights the topics that we [students] believe (rightly or wrongly) make up the core MSK curriculum. This document was written by students, for students. It is NOT an approved staff-endorsed document.
