Undergraduate and Student Placement Programs

BRHS acknowledges a commitment to the ongoing development of the region’s health workforce through our student programs. 

Student placements for undergraduates are provided in Nursing, Midwifery, Medicine, Allied health Sciences and Therapies, Aged and Community Care, Health information management and Allied Health disciplines in partnership with a variety of Universities, TAFEs and Registered Training Organisations.

These partnerships provide exposure to working in a rural setting in the public health sector and support students to gain the qualifications and experience they need to provide high quality healthcare.

Our Student Placement Program is planned with consideration to service delivery requirements, supervision capacity and the learning objectives of the student. Students are required to meet pre-placement requirements before commencing placement.

Benefits of the program.

  • Secure your placement within a local industry and enjoy the benefits of working in a rural hospital with major exposure to a wide range of patient conditions.
  • Collect dynamic clinical experiences in diverse settings including Aged Care, Sub-Acute and Acute sectors.
  • Enjoy the opportunity to get employment beyond the program either in our Hospital/Community or Aged Care settings.
  • Experience ongoing training and support through the Learning Support and Development team and in various settings.
  • Enjoy personalised support from our dedicated preceptors.
