The Clinical Education Unit (CEU) is responsible for clinical education governance at Austin Health within a Best Practice Clinical Learning Environment.
The CEU has three pillars of education:
Each pillar has a leader who is responsible for day to day education as well as ensuring the workforce is well positioned to meet the National Safety and Quality in Health Service Standards.
This integrated approach to education and training aims to ensure that Austin Health has knowledgeable, skilled staff which is reflected in the quality of care to our patients.
The Health Sciences Library located at the Austin Hospital provides Library services for all staff across Austin Health and Mercy Hospital for Women.
Austin Health is affiliated with education providers from both higher education and the vocational education and training sector. These affiliations span from entry level to practice to postgraduate education and training across all clinical disciplines.
