Do you know an outstanding clinical educator at the Princess Alexandra Hospital who makes a difference to students, colleagues or patients?

This prestigious award is presented to exemplary allied health clinicians employed by the Princess Alexandra Hospital who provide clinical education to allied health staff and students, in addition to their clinical duties.

The Award for Excellence in Allied Health Education is determined by the Executive Director of Clinical Support Services with support from the allied health workforce development team and the Chair of the Metro South Allied Health Clinical Educator Network.

The award recipient will receive a $1,000 professional development bursary during this year's PAH Health Symposium.
