Abstract

Commencing in February 2008, an alternative model for clinical placements was developed. Second- and third-year students were placed in a weekly clinical placement model and many provided valuable feedback. This article provides an overview of formal evaluations of the model. Recommendations from this study were based on perceptions from students and outline ways of significantly facilitating students in the learning environment along with the delivery of required theoretical knowledge.
