Professional Experience Placement (PEP)
To be eligible to undertake PEP, all students must be “Verified” as meeting College of Health and Medicine PEP Safety in Practice Compliance as per the Course Entry Requirements. Students who cannot or do not comply with these requirements will not be allocated PEP and therefore will not be able to complete this unit.
This is the first period of supervised professional experience practice for all students, and for most students this placement occurs in the University Psychology Clinic (UPC). In total, the first clinical placement requires 300-350 hours of professional experience at the UPC, or other suitable external placement setting. Students work in the UPC under the supervision of experienced clinical supervisors. This placement provides an opportunity to develop some clinical skills to a level consistent with expectations for this stage of training as a clinical psychologist. It is the first placement in an integrated sequence of placements in the clinical training program.
