Welcome to the Virtual Orientation Tour website. Our goal has been to develop a suite of virtual tours of rural and remote health practice settings around Tasmania to assist students select and prepare for rural placements. It is important that students understand rural health services, including the supports, resources and breadth of learning opportunities available so they can align their goals and expectations of the rural professional experience placement to optimise clinical learning.
The Virtual Orientation Tours will provide you with a range of site-specific resources to introduce you to the health services provided, on-site clinical learning facilities, key personnel, accommodation, and other learning resources. We hope that this will allay any pre-placement fears, better prepare you for rural placement and make you feel more confident and welcome.
