The Graduate Certificate of Clinical Facilitation is designed to meet the needs of health professionals as a foundation for facilitating clinical learning in health care workplaces.

The course is designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills to plan, implement and evaluate on-going facilitation when involved with the delivery of clinical education. It will also provide you with formal training in teaching and supervision, including the ability to overcome challenges when facilitating learning.

It is expected that you will already be employed in a clinical setting and will undertake assessments that have a direct application to professional practice and context.

This course provides a strong theoretical and practical grounding that enables health practitioners to develop an analytical approach to clinical education and facilitates your capacity to think critically and to provide enhanced clinical facilitation and supervision of health professional students.

Career opportunities

Completion of the Graduate Certificate of Clinical Facilitation enables career opportunities for enhanced clinical facilitation and supervision of health professional students.
