University Student Placements

All placements will commence on Monday of your first week with Orientation Day.

Please organise travel so you arrive in Broken Hill by Sunday evening, ready to commence placement at 8.30am on Monday morning. Placements commence on Monday and mid-week starts are not permitted.

Accommodation is normally available after arrival on Sunday. If you require accommodation on the Saturday evening prior to commencing your placement, please note this in the comments box at the end of the application form. The BH UDRH will do its best to assist with your accommodation request, however all requests may not be possible. Students are required to pack their belongings by 9am Friday morning of their last day of placement and leave in the common area of the accommodation unit. Please note: Friday night accommodation is not available.

On those weeks when Monday is a Public Holiday then Orientation runs on Tuesday and first day at placement is Wednesday of week 1.

Mandatory Documentation

All students participating in clinical placements within a NSW Health Facility must complete all mandatory documentation prior to placement. These are as follows:

IMMUNISATION
The New South Wales Department of Health requires all students to provide their immunisation records to the Risk Management Unit, Orange NSW, for processing before a placement can commence. The immunisation process can take up to six weeks to complete and must be completed seven days prior to placement. Please read. Immunisation requirements (pdf) and Immunisation Fact Sheet (pdf).

CRIMINAL RECORD CLEARANCE
All students enrolling in courses that involve clinical placements in NSW Public Health Facilities must also undertake criminal record checks and comply with certain other NSW Health policy requirements. Click on the following link for more information. National Criminal Record Check (pdf)

CODE OF CONDUCT
This document outlines the NSW Health Code of Conduct (pdf) and applies to staff working in any permanent, temporary, casual, termed appointment or honorary capacity within any NSW Health facility. Students are required to read this document carefully and sign the relevant code of conduct agreement form received in their information package upon accepting clinical placements.

Further information can be obtained via the NSW Health website: http://www.health.nsw.gov.au/careers/student_clearance/Pages or by contacting the Student Coordinator on 08 8080 1200.

Please note, if you have previously participated in a compliance drive via your Education Provider you may already be compliant to undertake placement in a NSW Health Facility but we will advise in relation to individual circumstances in pre-placement documentation if your application is successful.
