Training and Education – Clinical Schools
Bendigo Health is a teaching and training hospital for medical, nursing and allied health professionals. These students, under the supervision of an experienced member of staff, may be part of your care team. If for any reason you would prefer not to be treated by a supervised student, please do not hesitate to let a staff member know.
Bendigo Health places the upmost importance on the safety and wellbeing of patients, staff, volunteers, families and visitors. We adopt a zero tolerance policy on violent and aggressive behaviour towards staff, other patients, visitors and volunteers. Suitably qualified staff are employed to enforce this policy where required.
