Student Placement

Children's/General Integrated Degree Programme

For the clinical component you will be based in one of the health service providers. Part of your course work will be practice placements, consisting of 36 weeks in a variety of clinical settings. These placements will take place in two 6-week blocks in each of years one, two and three of the programme. During the fourth year you undertake a 36-week roster of continuous placement and you will be a paid health service employee. The linked Health Service Provider is the Adelaide and Meath hospital Dublin, incorporating the National Children's Hospital, (AMNCH). Most Children's and General placements occur in this site and the students are employees of AMNCH during the rostered placement. A number of placements occur in other approved sites throughout the course of the programme.
