Final year professional practice placements (PPP) represent the capstone of the educational journey for all health information management students enrolled at La Trobe University. Students completing their final year of academic studies gain industry experience, usually within their chosen area of interest. This may be at research institutions, health information technology companies, health information services in hospitals, government organisations, screening services, clinical quality registries, community health centres and more. The placement provides students with practical experience working within the industry and allows application of university theory, under guided supervision, to existing work.
