Due to our funding agreement we are able to offer support to Deakin University Faculty of Health students, with preference given to those with a placement of four weeks or greater. If you do not fit this criteria we encourage you to visit the following links that may offer support:
The Student Support Program provides support for undergraduate and postgraduate health professional students undertaking clinical or research placements in the Western Victoria region.
The program aims to improve the clinical and learning experiences of students on placement by providing a range of services and resources. For example, multidisciplinary interaction experienced through shared accommodation facilities helps prepare students to work in multidisciplinary teams.
The clinical experiences of students are evaluated post-placement and reported in publications to the Australian Government, students and the broader community. Feedback from these evaluations is also used as an ongoing reflection tool to identify improvements to the services and support offered under the program.
