The LEAP (Learning, Education, and Academic Placements) program is a partnership between Gold Coast Health (GCH) and several educational institutions, including The University of Queensland. This partnership allows GCH to host students as interns in non-clinical placements, providing valuable learning opportunities and access to talented individuals from top educational institutions for GCH. 

To get started, check out the Opportunities Below for a list of current non-clinical internship projects offered by GCH. Each row on the table below represents a placement opportunity. The information will be updated regularly to highlight when an opportunity has been filled and to add new ones as they become available. 

Depending on the student’s UQ enrolment, the experience can be either a Work Integrated Learning Placement or a Work Experience. The student would also be expected to complete an GCH Work Experience Agreement (WEA) with Gold Coast Health before commencing the placement and the WEA has been reviewed and endorsed by UQ’s Legal Service.

For more information on the QLD Public Service Code of Conduct 2011, please visit here. Students are advised to seek independent legal advice if they wish. The UQ Union, an independent advisor, or legal counsel may be able to assist.
