Clinical placement commitments
Applicants should be aware they will be required to undertake placement at Clinical School locations away from their university of enrolment. During Years 4 and 5, all students are required to complete at least one year (two semesters) at a metropolitan clinical school (Hunter/Central Coast). Please be prepared to pay for the additional expenses associated with travel and accommodation for these clinical placements.
Senior First Aid certificate
All commencing students must provide a current WorkCover approved Senior First Aid Certificate which indicates that CPR has been completed. The currency of First Aid certificates, including CPR, must be maintained throughout the program.
It is expected that First Aid courses will be available through both the University of Newcastle and University of New England early in Semester 1, each year.
Additional information concerning this requirement will be provided to students during orientation week. Enquiries should be directed to either the Enquiry Centre, University of Newcastle at AskUoN or AskUNE at the University of New England.
