Useful Resources

Clinical placement

Practicums are considered a most important component of a students’ education in the School of Psychology and Speech Pathology. Practicums provide opportunities to foster and maintain relationships between Curtin University and outside agencies. The success of a practicum depends very much on a collaborative working relationship between the university staff, the practicum agency representative, and the student.

For you, the student, field practicums can be one of the most exciting and rewarding aspects of the postgraduate program. The practicum provides you with the opportunity to cohesively integrate theoretical and practical components of the program with the benefit of guidance and support from a field supervisor and university personnel. It is also a valuable opportunity to gain knowledge and practical experience of organisational processes, administration, service provision and community networks.
