Students from a range of disciplines and education providers are able to undertake their practicum with us.
Placements provide students with the knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the principles and practices of community health and the benefits of working within a social model of health framework.
Education providers – Requesting a placement
It is Gateway Health’s policy to charge fees for student placements. These fees vary depending on the discipline involved.
Fees need to be paid by the education provider as we cannot enter into a legal placement agreement directly with the student.
Please note that an offer of placement will depend on our capacity, and the student successfully completing an interview with the relevant team leader.
We are not able to accommodate work experience requests.
If you are a student and would like to undertake your placement at Gateway health please contact your education provider who can request placement for you.
If you have received an offer to undertake your placement with Gateway Health you will receive a placement package via email with all of the information you need to begin your placement with us.
We look forward to welcoming you to Gateway Health and hope that you find your placement with us to be an invaluable learning experience!
