Developing Clinical Placement Opportunities
Leah Paice has been living in Da Nang, Vietnam since January this year. She is currently completing a 12 month assignment as a volunteer speech pathology advisor with the Australian Volunteers Program, part of the broader Australian Aid program. Leah has been working in the role of Clinical Coordinator at Da Nang University of Medical Technology and Pharmacy (DUMTP), alongside fellow Australian volunteer, Sarah Day. The university will be the first in Vietnam to offer a Bachelor of Rehabilitation (SALT) with students commencing their first SALT subjects in August this year. Both Leah and Sarah work closely with Trinh Foundation Australia to support the development and implementation of this course.
As Clinical Coordinator Leah’s role is to assist the university to plan and develop student clinical placement opportunities throughout their degree. This involves fostering partnerships with external organisations, such as local hospitals, schools and clinics, to ensure students participating in the Bachelor have a range of high-quality clinical training experiences. Leah also collaborates with Australian volunteer clinical educators who will travel to Vietnam to supervise students alongside Vietnamese speech pathologists during these placements.
Leah will continue to support DUMTP in the development of clinical placement opportunities for Vietnamese SALT students until January 2020.
