The Impact of COVID-19 on Student Placements facilitated by University Departments of Rural Health.

As student responses to these placement changes were not well understood, UDRHs were interested in student experiences of their UDRH-facilitated rural or remote placement during 2020. All 16 UDRHs agreed to participate in a study of student perspectives among students who had a placement organised by a UDRH. The aims of the study were to:

  1. identify student perspectives of impacts to UDRH-facilitated placements due to COVID-19;
  2. identify student perspectives of UDRH-facilitated placements during COVID-19;
  3. understand student experiences of UDRH-facilitated placements during COVID-19.
