Expression of Interest to host a practicum student in 2018

UWA School of Population and Global Health students are provided with the opportunity to complete placements within health agencies as part of their degree. Students are able to undertake projects which your agency many not have had the resources of opportunity to undertake. The aim of these placements is to provide a supportive environment in which students gain valuable workplace experience whilst assisting agencies to complete important projects.

In 2018 we are offering two practicums:

  • Public Health Practicum (postgraduate students) - This one-semester practicum is offered to postgraduate Master of Public Health students. Agency placements starts on Monday 6th August, 2018. Students attend agencies between 4 and 4.5 days a week whilst concurrently completing university tutorials one morning each week plus assessments. A total of between 450-490 hours is completed for the unit which includes time at placement, university tutorials and assessments. The agency placements conclude by Friday 26th October, 2018.
