Become a clinical supervisor

To provide innovative rural placement opportunities, we often employ or contract clinicians from various disciplinary backgrounds to provide clinical supervision during placement blocks. These opportunities are available across our footprint and generally involve face-to-face or online supervision of students for a few hours a week for a set placement block.
