Students and Clinical Education

Allied Health Care for the Ballarat Region

Lake Health Group have a commitment to excellence in physiotherapy. In an effort to share this commitment, we have developed partnerships with the University of Melbourne, Latrobe University and locally Australian Catholic University (ACU) to offer Physiotherapy Placements to students. Our clinic provide clinical placements for final year physiotherapy students and observation placements for first year ACU students currently. Because of this ongoing commitment with our partners we are unable to provide work experience placements, but attend local careers expos each year to provide information to perspective Allied Health Students and support their health journey.

Our Expectations

Lake Health Group have high standards of professionalism, ethics and continuing education and we expect the same from our students. Clinical Placements are generally organised by the University well in advance and we provide our clients with notice of students being a part of clinic. If clients are uncomfortable or would prefer not to have a student sit in on a consultation please let your treating therapist know.

Lockdown

As per our most recent lockdowns, allied health services (Physiotherapy and Podiatry) are deemed essential and as such the clinic will be open for essential clinical care.

There will be no clinical pilates, GLAD, exercise therapy, myotherapy or massage during this lockdown. We will seek to re-schedule any existing appointments.

What does this mean for you?
- If you have a Physio or Podiatry appointment during the lockdown period, your therapist will work with you to determine if the appointment would fall into the defined essential category.
- You ARE ALLOWED to travel more than 5km for medical appointments, please use your text message reminder as proof if required.

We welcome all clients except those who have visited the listed COVID exposure sites as per the current government legislation and COVID safe requirements.

If you have any queries or concerns please contact our friendly administration team on 5335 3200.
