Metro South Health is committed to Closing the Gap and increasing the participation rate of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in our workforce through providing a paid work placement to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who are engaged in full-time tertiary studies in an allied health degree.

The cadetship offers students who are studying a full-time tertiary qualification in allied health with the opportunity to perform a range of clinical support activities and develop their skills on the job. Cadets work under the delegation and supervision of a health professional in their field to provide effective patient care.

Cadets are employed in a fixedterm, part time capacity for 10 weeks as a developmental work experience placement. The 10-week work placement component has the ability to be undertaken in a flexible schedule to ensure cadets are able to balance full-time study commitments and clinical placements that fulfil course requirements. The work placement component of the cadetship must be completed within one calendar year from commencement.
