Student Placements

Murrumbidgee Local Health District recognises the importance of providing practical clinical experience to educate future health professionals.

We have 'Student Placement Agreements' with many tertiary institutions in a range of disciplines to enable undergraduate students gain supervised clinical experience at our health facility.

All student placements are arranged through your education provider.

Before your placement

All students need to provide their immunisation documentation and an original police check before commencing a placement at a NSW Health facility.

Your education provider can assist you with submitting your evidence for assessment.

Information about the requirements for compliance can be found in the 'Student Handbook' (see below).

Once you have an arranged student placement, you will be given information about where to attend on your first day and who to report to.

You will need to complete the forms in the 'Documentation Handbook'.

Be sure to bring the handbook with you on your first day of placement.

Commencing your placement

Your supervisor will provide you with an orientation of the facility, including workplace health and safety, and will outline your responsibilities as a student in a NSW Health facility.

Student placement survey

Murrumbidgee Local Health District wishes you a successful student placement experience and values your feedback via the 'Student Placement Survey' on completion of your placement.

This survey is located in the 'Documentation Handbook' and will be treated as confidential.

'Student Handbook for Clinical Placement' and 'Documentation for Students on Clinical Placement' handbooks

There are two handbooks to assist you with the knowledge and documentation you will need for your student
placement.

The 'Student Handbook for Clinical Placement' [PDF] provides you with information to prepare for your clinical
placement or fieldwork education. This handbook can be re-used.

The 'Documentation for Students on Clinical Placement' [PDF] handbook is to be completed with each placement and
contains all the required documentation to help make your learning experience safe, valuable and enjoyable.

These handbooks direct you to NSW Ministry of Health policies and procedures that have important workplace health, safety and medico-legal implications for all staff and students working in a NSW Health Facility.
