Privacy and collection of personal information

The University's privacy guidelines explain why we collect and how we use student's personal information.


Religious holiday observance and placement attendance

Some students will require leave from clinical placement from time to time due to religious holidays. The faculty follows the Monash Strict Religious Observances Guidelines. And a link to a multifaith calendar on the Diversity & Inclusion website can be used as a reference for staff and students.

If you need to take leave from clinical placements due to strict observation of religious holidays, you must notify the clinical co-ordinator of your religious holiday commitments. You will need to provide documentary evidence confirming your obligations to support your request. (See the guidelines above.)

Where you do miss clinical placement days due to religious observance you will need to make up the time missed.


Occupational Health & Safety

Emergency response plans

The emergency response plans provide guidance on operations during emergencies on a usual business day. Emergencies such as Code Red and Pre-Declared Code Red (catastrophic) fire danger ratings and storm / flood / earthquakes and other emergencies. They apply to students on clinical placements and Monash Rural Health staff throughout regional Victoria.
