Clinical Education is a vital part of training the future healthcare workforce.  Experienced audiologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and speech pathologists provide an invaluable contribution to education by providing students with hands-on, patient-focused training in a healthcare setting.


In addition to imparting skills, knowledge and best practice to students, clinical educators have the opportunity to obtain an academic title from The University of Queensland. This may assist career development and has many other associated benefits. Find out more about academic titles.


Clinical educators are supported by a team of Clinical Education Liaison Managers (CELMs) and an administrative placements support team.  CELMs are available to:

  • assist in the development and provision of student placement opportunities
  • provide support to clinical educators and our students to optimise learning
  • arrange training and workshops for clinical educators to further their skills.
