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 Catherine.Wilson@uts.edu.au, 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.
