Graduate Attributes in an Age of Uncertainty



About the symposium

The Australian Council of Deans of Health Sciences Symposium will be held on 21 October 2022 at the Sydney Masonic Centre, Sydney, NSW.

The Australian Council of Deans of Health Sciences (ACDHS) is the peak representative organisation for Australian universities that provide undergraduate education in the clinical allied health sciences.

The symposium will cover:

  • Stakeholder perspectives on the achievement and relevance of graduate attributes
  • The role of industry in curriculum development
  • How collaborations with external university partners deliver and strengthen translation to practice skills in our graduates
  • The influence of the quality of placement experiences on the development of graduate attributes for health sciences students
