The Student Work Placement Program offers post-secondary students in science, engineering, mathematics (MINT) and economic programs across Canada paid work experience in your field of study. The latest clinical placement agreement is in effect for the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) and 14 post-secondary schools. The agreement came into force on May 1, 2017. Many of the schedules relate to the processes of former regional health agencies (MSAs) that now apply to the SHA. All non-SA Health students and collaborators who participate in clinical internships at SA Health sites must keep a signed copy of the SA Health Clinical Placement Deed Poll. This must be signed by the student and by all training provider staff who visit SA Health`s websites and are not current EMPLOYEEs of SA Health. The legal document must also be signed by a witness who is an adult (aged 18 or over). Students must complete and sign the Deed Poll (PDF 249KB) and provide a copy to SAs Health staff upon request. For information on internships and other programs that go beyond what is available in this section of our website, please contact the undergraduate/Postgraduate coordinator at 306-741-5926. No, the program currently applies only to students with Canadian citizenship, permanent resident status or refugee status in the country. Currently, international students with work visas do not qualify for the program. The wage subsidy is based on a standard 16-week internship, but there is no fixed number of hours or weeks for the program.
It is time to determine to the employer, the industrial partner and the school what the minimum criteria for the wage subsidy are. Some inter-professional organizations have developed minimum deadlines for their student work placement programs. To place each student on the health site (s), all education and training providers must have an updated clinical placement agreement (agreement) with South Australia. The agreement provides a general framework for educational and training providers to apply for clinical internships in SA health facilities and defines the obligations of both parties. The agreements include all working health professionals. They have been developed with consultation and feedback with educational and training providers and replace clinical intermediation work to date. As part of the agreement, education and training providers have a responsibility to ensure that students meet all of SA Health`s placement requirements. CEWIL Canada members can partner with participants in the student placement program to offer internships to PES students or to agree on new initiatives.
