Who qualifies for a Employee/Learner Placement?
Health care professionals employed by Canadian Institutions, such as Regional Health Authorities (RHA), may seek placement opportunities with Eastern Health for the purpose of sharing expertise and/or maintaining clinical skills. In such cases, the student placement process as outlined in steps 1-3 should be followed.
An affiliation agreement between Eastern Health and the employees’ institution (e.g. RHA) is required.
The institution is also required to provide a certificate of insurance covering the time period of the employees’ placement dates. A request for this agreement should be submitted to the student services office three to six months prior to the placement start date.
