As a UTS student undertaking the Graduate Certificate in Diabetes Education and Management, you need to meet UTS and the Australian Diabetes Educators Association (ADEA) accreditation requirements.
For the clinical component of the course you are required to:
- Complete a one week placement (40 hours over 5 consecutive days) between Monday 24 August to Friday 10 December 2020
- Submit the correct state/territory compliance requirements
Preferencing a Clinical Placement
The Clinical Practice Unit (CPU) will arrange your clinical placement in an approved public or private health facility.
Once you have enrolled in subject 93006 - Clinical Practice in Diabetes you will receive an email about the following:
- Preferencing for your clinical placement including available week
- Check the approved facility list to help decide on an appropriate health facility
- You can also request a placement that is not on the list. The health facility must have a credentialed Diabetes Educator on site. The CPU will make contact with the health facility about a potential placement
- Contact Shannon Lin, Course Coordinator, for placement advice
- State/Territory compliance requirements
You need to complete the correct compliance documents and vaccinations required by each state or territory depending on where you are undertaking your placement.
Please note that even if you work in a healthcare setting you still need to provide the compliance documentation as you are a student and must meet the requirements for a student.
