Medical programs operate in a unique space in terms of BDH, as they span both higher education and the health system. A whole-of-program approach must consider campus learning environments as well as the clinical learning environments where many of those teaching students are employees of health services, not universities.

Central university policies and procedures on BDH are developed for students across all disciplines, but the research tells us that most of the BDH experienced by medical students occurs during clinical training. This guide is a complementary resource, bringing together a range of information and advice specifically relevant for medical schools (and other health professional programs).
