Infrastructure

Refurbishment of Traning Rooms
Refurbishment of 20 traning room facilities in the Murrumbidgee and Southern areas of NSW and the creation of a student education room and two additional dental health clinics at ACT Health.

Specific capital infrastructure programs include investment in student accommodation in the ACT to enable interstate students to complete placements in the Capital without restrictive accommodation costs, refurbishment of 20 training room facilities in the Murrumbidgee and Southern areas of NSW and the creation of a student education room and two additional dental health clinics at ACT Health.

Additional funds received from HWA purchased equipment for the above capital programs and also further developed the student placement processes at ACT Health, including the introduction of an electronic document management system and an interactive website for students.

Clinical Training Placements

CTP funding is no longer available through ACT Region ICTN, this funding is directly provided to the universities by the Australian Government.

CTP is a very important Australian Government funded project in terms of turning Students into future leaders by building the workforce for the future by providing professional training to undergraduate and post graduate students that are going to pursue a career in Heath to enable greater health workforce capacity.

These additional funded placements are delivered across ACT Health, Calvary Public, Calvary John James and a number of regional NSW Hospitals for students from Charles Stuart University, University of Canberra and University of Adelaide.
Over the past three years $2.786m in subsidies has been made available by Health Workforce Australia to fund 35,772 additional placement days across the disciplines of Nursing, Midwifery, Physiotherapy, Dietetics, Psychology, Pharmacy and Dentistry in 2011-2013 across Australia.

This will in return address Australia’s health workforce shortages through increasing the number of students in health professions and expanding the clinical training capacity of Australia’s health system.
