Clinical placement information

To qualify for entry into the MCH programs at either La Trobe, RMIT or Federation University, you must be a registered nurse and midwife, with at least one-year (full time equivalent) work experience in each area.

We will advise you of the outcome by mid November for start year intake and mid year for mid year intakes.

If successful, you are required to accept the provisional clinical MCH place within 5 working days.  Please also advise your preferred university of your acceptance of a clinical place promptly.
