"Half of the cardiac physiologists working at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, myself included, are past Swinburne graduates who all completed the Professional Placements Program (formerly Industry Based Learning).
I spent my placement in Tasmania working at the Launceston General Hospital in Biomedical Engineering. The placement was a great learning opportunity and opened my eyes to many potential career choices within the healthcare field."
But when she finished her placement in Tasmania, Shannon’s involvement with the program wasn’t over — she's now the placement supervisor at the Royal Melbourne Hospital.
In this role, Shannon, an advocate and supporter of the Swinburne program, is proud to help students take those first steps along their chosen career paths.
