About your Health Practicum

  • HLT326 is scheduled for Session 8 and will be a 2 week full time practicum.
  • You will be manually enrolled in HLT326 when you have your mandatory requirements uploaded to Sonia Online and a placement allocation has been confirmed for you.
  • Whilst we will attempt to place you close to your preferred placement area this cannot be guaranteed and you may be required to undertake your placement outside the region.
  • All travel and accommodation expenses incurred whilst undertaking practicum are the responsibility of the student
  • To be eligible for your practicum you are required to hold a current Blue Card (linked to USC) and National Police Check. You may be required to meet other mandatory requirements and this will depend on your host organisation. You will be notified of this once your placement has been confirmed.


Please visit the Events page to view all current events.


Please note

It is the responsibility of each student to ensure their mandatory documents are current and that the originals are available for sighting on request from USC or Placement Staff.

This database is a ‘work in progress’ – you may still need to check Blackboard for additional information, and some facility information may be provided via additional emails. If you believe any of the content is incorrect please contact the placement coordinator.
