One of the most important aspects of their education for health information management students is the ability to put the theoretical knowledge they have gained in university lectures into context in a healthcare setting. Through participation in practical placements, students undertake experiential learning, giving them the opportunity to apply what they have previously only encountered in the classroom. This is particularly important for students of clinical classification/coding, to enable them to use “real medical records” to read and abstract details for clinical coding, apply codes using the Australian Coding Standards and learn about the importanceof clinical coding in a hospital situation.
