Eastern Health (EH) hosts hundreds of student placements each year, including placements in both health care and non-health care programs.
These placement experiences help students learn the necessary skills, attitudes and knowledge required to practice effectively in their field. Preparing students to become qualified, skilled health care and service providers sets the foundation for creating a sustainable workforce. This supports the overall health of our people in our communities.
