About student placements

  • Your student placement at The Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne will be filled with opportunities and challenges that are unique to RCH and the paediatric setting.

    This website has been designed to help you learn more about RCH before and during your placement. Ten different modules cover a range of topics to prepare you for your placement, and working with patients, families and staff.

    Students are expected to familiarise themselves with the information in each of the ten modules. Bookmark this page so that you can return to it at anytime.

    Please note that some content requires audio on your computer or smartphone, and some content will be accessible from the RCH intranet only.
