The Charles Sturt University Bachelor of Paramedicine Handbook for Clinical Facilitators and Clinical Preceptors is a resource to assist those individuals who are involved in providing valuable clinical learning experiences for our students.

This handbook provides information regarding the roles and responsibilities of those staff involved in supervising students on their Workplace Learning (WPL) experience. As such, the handbook will assist the following staff:

  • University employed clinical facilitators.
  • Clinical preceptors employed by a health service.
  • Health service education managers.

These experiences allow the student to demonstrate professional competencies required to practice as a registered paramedic at the completion of their course.

Thank you for your interest in working with both students and staff at Charles Sturt University. We appreciate your commitment to the future generation of paramedic professionals, and in ensuring we produce graduates of a high standard who are ready to undertake safe and competent clinical practice.
