Clinical schools

A clinical school is a dedicated teaching space set up by the university within hospitals. So far La Trobe has dedicated teaching spaces at The Alfred Hospital, Austin Hospital, Bendigo Health Care and the Gerontic Clinical School at the Bundoora Extended Care Centre.

We have a strong relationship with The Alfred Health Clinical School as part of our Academic Research Network. The program allows students and academics access to expert clinicians and the opportunity to participate in challenging placements and research. The partnership develops leading research in areas of Nursing and Allied Health and provides a developmental environment for undergraduate and postgraduate students to expand on their classroom knowledge.

Bendigo Health Care Group (BHCG) provides a wide range of nursing expereinces for nursing students. With a 220 bed acute hospital, 48 psychiatric beds, 265 residential aged care places, and 90 rehabilitation, GEM (Geriatric Evaluation and Management) and hospice beds the group offers a range of opportunities covering most clinical specialties.

We also have very close links with a number of affiliate hospitals and health care organisations including Albury-Wodonga Private Hospital, Royal District Nursing Service, Goulburn Valley Health and Mercy Hospital for Women.
