    Student Clinical Placements

    Justice Health & Forensic Mental Health Network (JH&FMHN) aims to break down barriers to clinical training within high secure forensic and custodial environments for undergraduate health professionals. This investment in clinical education supports JH&FMHN in its endeavour to become an employer of choice and developing expertise that are transferrable across every context of health care. The Student Placement Program co-ordinates clinical placements of all undergraduate students through-out the Network.  The program has been developed in consultation with Education Provider to ensure that students achieve their objectives and experience a range of clinical experiences that enhance their educational understanding of health care in custodial settings. These placements offer an opportunity to a unique environment where they will observe and participate in the complexities of working within a multidisciplinary team in correction, community and forensic mental health environments.

    A valid Student Placement Agreement and Operational Schedule between the Network and the Education Provider are required before students can attend placements. All placements are booked through ClinConnect, which is a web-based application that supports Local Health Districts and the Education Provider to facilitate and manage clinical training demand and capacity.  The ClinConnect Coordinator for the Network is the Student Placement Coordinator.  JH&FMHN provides an excellent insight into the changing face of health care delivery, including multidisciplinary health care, primary care, mental health and the relationship between health and broader social-economic factors.
