Work Integrated Learning: 

Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) is a part of the Master of Advanced Health Services Management program. It is done through a full-time work placement in a healthcare organization. WIL's purpose is to let students put what they've learned in their postgraduate studies to use in the workplace. 


This WIL component allows students to connect with health professionals and management in modern healthcare facilities, which is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.


Work-integrated learning activities combine theoretical learning and its application in the workplace. The inclusion of work-integrated learning activities in the degree program demonstrates Griffith's commitment to preparing graduates for success in the workplace.


The work-integrated learning component of the curriculum is designed to help students put the theoretical knowledge they've learned in the first two or three trimesters into practice. As a result, students can only begin their internship after they have completed their degree program's course work.


Students should be aware that the work-integrated learning component is only available to students who have completed 80 credit points of courses and lasts for 13 weeks. 


Students must achieve Fit for Placement compliance standards in the trimester before beginning WIL, and they will not be permitted to advance on a WIL placement unless they do. 


Students must enroll in all four components of the work-integrated learning course before commencing the 13-week (390-hour) work-integrated placement. It is not available on a part-time basis.
