Student placements

The Majarlin Kimberley Centre for Remote Health is located on The University of Notre Dame Australia's Broome Campus. We organise placements for allied health and nursing students in Broome and across the Kimberley.

Undertaking a placement in the Kimberley provides a blend of academic, professional, social and cultural experiences underpinned by a strong theme of inter-professional education. The placement will be a memorable experience that will contribute to both your professional and personal development and will be an asset to your resume.
