Nursing and allied health student placements

When you’re heading off on a rural clinical placement, nothing beats local knowledge. Monash Rural Health has been embedded in rural communities for nearly 25 years now, so we know our regions inside out. Our doors are open to all medicine, nursing and allied health students and we’re very happy to share what we know.

Come and introduce yourself

Finding somewhere to stay is a big part of a placement and we can certainly help with accommodation. But we offer a lot more than a roof over your head. If you’re staying near one of Monash Rural Health’s main teaching sites you’ll also have access to:

  • libraries
  • student lounges
  • Eduroam Wi-Fi
  • simulation suites

We have major training sites at:

Tap into our networks

We also know what’s happening outside work times when you need a break from studying. Student social events, local sporting clubs and activities, the safest cycling or running routes, the best place to find coffee ... just ask.

Drop into one of our teaching sites and introduce yourself to our staff. We’re looking forward to meeting you.
