IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR APPLICATION FOR PLACEMENT

To apply for a placement at the UCRH you will need to complete an application.

This is a separate application to the placement arranged by your University Co-ordinator and regardless of your Clin Connect status.

The details provide personal and placement information, help us to arrange the logistics of your arrival, allow access to IT in your accommodation and in the hospital setting, hospital security access, accommodation and any rostering requirements.

Many students will be verified compliant in the ClinConnect system.

If you have been fully verified in ClinConnect, please indicate your ClinConnect compliance on the form in the tickbox provided and you will not need to upload your vaccination documents or Police check.

If you are NOT verified in Clin Connect - you will need to upload your documents so we can send them off to the Infection Control Unit for assessment - this documentation is required 4 weeks prior to placement. Late submissions will result in cancellation of your placement. You will need to upload your Police check and BRING THE ORIGINAL TO PLACEMENT ON YOUR FIRST DAY.

 

The application is a 3-step process and you need to complete each step before progressing:

 

  1. Set up your username and password and build your profile
  2. Upload all your documents (Completed vaccination forms, certificates, records and ID cards)
  3. Apply for your placement and accommodation

 

Please note that completion of the mentioned forms are a requirement of NSW Health.

Incomplete applications are not assessed for placement availability until all required documentation is received.

Your placement is only confirmed once we assess your application.


If you have requested accommodation, it is important to note that accommodation in Lismore is restricted due to a high number of students. This means that rooms in UCRH houses are not guaranteed, and you may be accommodated in Crawford House located on the grounds of Lismore Base Hospital.

In the event of accommodation not being available at all, you will be contacted.***
