Documents for your clinical placement
As you prepare for your clinical placement in a Queensland Health facility, you must complete certain documents to formalise the placement arrangements.
Student Deed Poll
The main legal document you must sign is the Student Deed Poll. The specific Deed Poll document you need to sign depends on whether you are a Group A or Group B student. Please ensure you complete the correct Deed Poll.
- If you attend a Group A education provider, sign the Group A Student Deed Poll (or Overseas Student Deed Poll for externally enrolled scholars).
- If you attend a Group B education provider, sign the Group B Student Deed Poll (or Overseas Student Deed Poll for externally enrolled scholars).
If you are unsure which category your educational facility falls into, check the list of education providers with current Deeds.
Before signing your Deed Poll, however, it is important that you have completed the mandatory orientation outlined in Preparing for your clinical placement. This includes understanding your responsibilities before and during your placement, including the pre-placement immunisation requirements and the legal obligations regarding safety, confidentiality, and conduct.
As evidence of your completing the orientation, please complete the Student orientation checklist. (Please note: Allied health students will need to complete the Student Orientation Checklist AND the Evidence record of allied health student training. Please refer to the Training modules website for more information.)
Submitting the documents
Your signed Student Deed Poll plus your completed orientation checklist must be returned to your education provider’s placement coordinator prior to the commencement of your placement.
