The School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences

The University of Queensland Health and Rehabilitation Clinics (UQHRC) of the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences have a longstanding reputation for providing allied health services in its work-integrated learning environment. The Clinics offers Audiology, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, and Speech Pathology services to adult and paediatric populations. Our clinics incorporate holistic and interprofessional patient-centered care with well established administrative support.

Located on the University of Queensland's St Lucia campus, you will work in a stimulating environment with an international reputation for innovative approaches to teaching, clinical and research excellence. 

This role is instrumental in the development of the next generation of speech pathologists, and will offer you the opportunity to facilitate student learning and the delivery of therapy services via Telerehabilitation to our clients and their families.

The role

These positions are responsible for facilitating the translation of theory to practice with groups and individual occupational therapy students in clinical practice. The positions will facilitate student led clinics, balancing client needs with student learning, whilst modelling professionalism and clinical competency. The position will collaborate with the clinical and administrative teams to grow and develop our Telerehabilitation Clinic.

Experience in the delivery of speech pathology services via telerehabilitation will be highly regarded.

Applicants will be required to work primarily in the telerehabilitation clinic, supervising the provision of paediatric speech pathology services to clients in schools and at home. You may also be required to work in the traditional face-to-face UQ-based or school-based clinics.
