 PLACEMENTS    |  
Clinical placement champions
Do you have a colleague who did exceptionally well on their placement? Someone whose knowledge, attitude and skills really stood out? Someone who had the confidence to take on placement projects?
Do you have a colleague who did exceptionally well on their placement? Someone whose knowledge, attitude and skills really stood out? Someone who had the confidence to take on placement projects?

Sydney University, in partnership with South Eastern Sydney Local Health District, and Macquarie University, is undertaking a project to find these ‘champions’. The project is titled; ‘Identifying Clinical Supervision Achievements and Innovations’.

Through a series of case studies, we aim to highlight the achievements of students, and identify what it is that they do to achieve great outcomes for their placements. The project will support the development of an annual ‘Showcase’, which will help us design and manage successful and efficient clinical placements.

So, nominate a mate you think has done really well on placement.  Contact: Stephen Rue, Work Integrated Learning, FHS, University of Sydney, Tel 02 9351 0944
