Facilitating Clinical Learning

Expand your skills and knowledge as a clinical facilitator in our course designed for health professionals who are involved in work integrated learning (WIL).

This two-day workshop provides essential preparation for clinical placement facilitators and will help you maximise the experience for you, your organisation and WIL students.

Work-Integrated Learning is recognised as a strategic priority at Flinders University. As a result, these experiences are required as part of many health and nursing study programs. These experiences include from more 'traditional' placements, practicums and field studies, to simulated workplace settings and assessment activities.
