  9. Also provide a set of clinical objectives to be achieved on the placement so that an appropriate education plan can be developed to assist you.

If documentation is incomplete the applicant will be notified.

Once all documentation has met mandatory requirements and placement availability is confirmed, the applicant will be advised of a contact person within the respective health facility to liaise with regarding the requirements on day 1 of the commencement date (meeting place etc.).
