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.

GROUP EXERCISE & GYM

Lake Health Group have ceased group exercise classes as of Thursday 6th August in line with government legislative requirements relating to Stage 3 COVID19  restrictions in regional Victoria.

Closure of the gym and Pilates area as well as cessation of groups is for a minimum of 6 weeks at this stage and relates to small exercise groups as well as the GLAD arthritis program.

For people in group classes please arrange for a one on one appointment with Josh or Jamie for them to construct a home program. For those currently doing GLAD with Lachie or Jasper this can continue but only in a 1 on 1 consultation basis.

We apologise for any inconvenience but your safety and that of all our clients and staff at Lake Health Group is our highest priority. We will continue to update you on the status of the gym and groups via social media, our website and our newsletter.
