Professional Visits & Clinical Placements
Tresillian is a leading child and family health organisation within Australia. We welcome requests for placement and visits from qualified professionals, researchers, post-graduate, and undergraduate students. We provide clinical placements for students enrolled in Graduate Certificate in Child and Family Health studies.
Any requests from qualified health professionals or researchers within Australia or from overseas to undertake a work or observational placement or professional visit, and who are not currently enrolled in a recognised tertiary course, must put their request in writing to the Director of Clinical Services. Certain requirements will be required to be met prior to the visit commencing. Note: if the applicant's primary employment is outside of NSW Health they will be required to meet the verification requirements which apply to all employees of NSW Health.
Further information: For further information and to clarify what is required to be supplied prior to commencement please contact TFCC-Education@health.nsw.gov.au.
Tresillian Family Care Centres are committed to the development of the child and family health workforce. Clinical placements are provided for post-graduate child and family health students and third year undergraduate nursing students in child and family health electives enrolled in Australian universities. In accordance with Ministry of Health policy, priority is given to NSW and ACT students.
All requests for clinical placements in NSW are made via ClinConnect. Individuals are required to contact their Education Provider and ask them to source and book the placement on their behalf. This is because Education Providers have access to the NSW Health student placement booking and management system (ClinConnect). This System will guide them to any available placement opportunities in NSW Health facilities. Student placements are organised in partnership with the Health Service and Education Provider and are booked and managed in the NSW Health ClinConnect system.
