For more than 30 years, the Middlesex-London Health Unit (MLHU) has supported an organizational culture that values post-secondary student education. We have sustained strong partnerships by working with health-related academic institutions to provide service excellence within our Student Education Program.
All Student Education Placement Requests
All requests for student placements must be received from an academic student placement coordinator from a post-secondary educational institution that has an affiliation agreement with MLHU.
Independent Placement Requests
Students who initiate independent placement requests will be redirected to their academic program advisor.
Medical Residents and Dietetic Interns
These candidates will be asked to provide additional information to determine if MLHU can provide an opportunity to meet their objectives.
Post-Secondary Academic Partners
Academic student placement coordinators can submit a placement request by contacting the Human Resources Student Coordinator at: email@example.com or (519) 663-5317 ext. 2597.
MLHU highly values the reciprocity in learning that occurs when positive education experiences provided for students perpetuate professional development opportunities for staff. Quality student placements also offer students insight into public health career options, access to unique core-competencies, and direct work experience – ultimately impacting our ability to sustain a competent public health workforce.
Education placement opportunities tailored to meet the students’ learning objectives also provide increased awareness about the diverse programs and services available within Public Health. Over the years, placements have been provided for multidisciplinary health-related programs such as: medicine, nursing, epidemiology, health promotion, social work, nutrition, plus a variety of Graduate programs. Further information about each service area and the programs they provide can be found at About Us.
Placements are subject to MLHU’s capacity to provide an opportunity based on academic program guidelines, placement objectives and the course syllabus provided by the school.
Some placement requirements may also include documentation to validate that the student:
- is enrolled in the academic program;
- is covered by workplace insurance;
- has a current Vulnerable Sector Police Check on file with the school;
- possesses a current driver’s license, proof of auto insurance, and has access to a vehicle for work related travel.
