Mobile Allied Health Clinic

The University of South Australia's Mobile Allied Health Clinic

The Mobile Allied-Health Clinic (MAHC) provides students from the School of Health Sciences with the opportunity to participate in a range of health related activities in a variety of locations. These activities take place in areas such as schools, shopping centres, aged care facilities and homeless shelters, and at community and sporting events.


Our students can participate in a wide variety of activities while using the MAHC including:

  • pre-exercise screening
  • health and wellness assessments
  • postural assessments
  • motor skill assessment of children
  • demonstration of Wii fit for improving balance and coordination
  • musculoskeletal screening
  • assisting with bone densitometry and mammogram assessments
  • neurovascular assessments
  • gait assessments
  • footwear assessments
  • talent Identification testing
  • consultations and program/treatment plans
  • sports trainer services (e.g. at local sports events such as netball, football and soccer)
  • health information
  • hand therapy.

All Division of Health Sciences students who, as part of their program, undertake activities where interaction with patients is required, such as in field or clinical placements/visits and in University clinics and gyms, must demonstrate that they have an Australian Police Check which will be current for the duration of that activity.

Work Experience Program

Our work experience program will build upon your:

  • practical and clinical experiences
  • work place skills
  • self confidence
  • communication skills
  • understanding of location-specific health issues.

Recognition For students that participate in 25 hours of activity you will receive a ‘Certificate of Recognition’ verifying your involvement in the MAHC Work Experience Program. This experience is a valuable addition to your curriculum vitae; employers look favourably at relevant, practical experience and it may give you that edge in gaining employment. You will also receive a book voucher and other rewards for your participation.

Assessment Students will not be assessed or graded for their involvement. However, you will be supervised by academic staff and the learning will transfer to your continuing study.

Transport to local events will be the responsibility of the student and by your own private transport. When students are required to travel more than 30km from the UniSA City East Campus transport will be provided. On these semi-rural trips food will also be supplied and, if required, accommodation.

Application The Work Experience Program is open to all Health Science students who are eager to develop further their skills and knowledge. If you are interested in applying to our Work Experience Program you must:

  1. Read the Guidelines on Work Experience (PDF, 144kb)
  2. Complete the Work Experience Agreement form (Word, 40kb)
