In general, students cannot look for their own placement. VID has collaboration agreements with several institutions that offer practical training, mainly in Oslo, Akershus and Buskerud. Some agreements are only for one academic year at a time. The number of places will therefore vary from one academic year to the next.
Students can find their own placements in public health, professional development and management. Such arrangements must be agreed with VID. Written notification of the placement must be provided well in advance of the period of practical training. Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org at least six weeks before the beginning of the period of practical training.
VID covers the following geographical areas in the municipal health service: Oslo, Akershus, Bærum and Vestby municipality. VID covers the following geographical areas in the specialist health service: Oslo, Akershus and Buskerud, including the hospitals and regional health authorities.
Please note that VID cannot guarantee placements in the specialist health service (medical/surgical/mental health work) near the homes of students who live outside Oslo, Akershus and Buskerud.
We have collaboration agreements with different institutions and their services. The agreements can change from one year to the next, and sometimes from one period to the next during the academic year.
