As a leading teaching hospital, UHSM is a popular placement for healthcare students. The Academy’s Practice Education Facilitator team works to ensure provision of high quality learning environments for all non-medical healthcare students across UHSM.
We work in partnership with placement teams, mentors/assessors, students and our partner universities to quality assure our placements. To make sure our students have the best possible experience, we provide guidance, support and learning opportunities and deliver training, updates and ongoing support for their mentors and assessors.
The PEF team have links with education providers across the North West, Health Education England North West (HEENW), the NHS North West Placement Development Network as well as placement providers across the voluntary and private sector.Multi-Professional Student Handbook (PDF – 3Mb)
