As a UTS student undertaking the Graduate Certificate in Diabetes Education and Management, you need to meet the following UTS and ADEA accreditation requirements:
- Complete one week (forty hours over 5 consecutive days) of clinical placement between Monday 27 August and Friday 14 December 2018. See 2018 Clinical Ladder for more information.
- Check MyPlacement for seeing placement information and uploading clinical compliance documents.
Preferencing a Clinical Placement
The Clinical Practice Unit (CPU) will arrange your clinical placement in an approved public or private health facility.
You need to:
- Select three facilities you’d prefer
- Give us four weeks that you’re available
- Check the approved placement sites list to help decide on a facility
- You can ask for one not on the list. It will need to be matched against UTS standards
Contact Shannon Lin, Course Coordinator, for placement advice.
You need to have the completed correct documents and vaccinations required by each state or territory in which you will be undertaking a clinical placement.
Working in a healthcare setting or as a registered nurse (RN):
- does not mean you are exempt from the process
- Some of the requirements may be different
- you have to go through the process with UTS
More information will be sent to you.
