Clinical placement areas
Students must be able to organise their work, family and other commitments during times of allocated clinical placement.
Clinical Placements are available in most Queensland Health Service Districts.
It is an expectation that students will attend 100% of their clinical experience at the time and shift allocated by their respective preceptor of clinical facility. All aspects of the placement, apart from organising it, are the students own responsibility.
- arranging child-minding;
- organising transport to and from the placement; and
- making plans to rearrange work shifts if necessary
We understand that sometimes events occur in our lives that prevent travel to a clinical placement site outside the local area. Processes to assist students are available.
