These pages will help you prepare for a practicum, and understand the student placement process at PHSA and its programs.
If you have a confirmed placement with us, you can get orientation information and tasks here. These should be completed before you arrive at your placement site and will help you to:
- understand key policies
- meet confidentiality requirements
- learn about your placement site
The SPECO Curriculum on the Learning Hub provides the core suite of orientation modules that all students are required to complete prior to their placement at any BC health authority.
To complete SPECO, you will need to create a 'student' Learning Hub account, using your school-based email address. The LearningHub account will maintain a record of your health authority learning, continuing into employment.
If you do not have a placement at PHSA or to learn how placements at PHSA are coordinated, please go to Placement Coordination.
