Starting your career – the first step

Understanding your professional responsibility is the first step towards starting your chosen career. The University of Tasmania and our partners have a duty of care to ensure the safety of students, staff and patients/ clients in their care. There are a number of legislative and regulatory requirements you need to meet to undertake PEP.

PEP allows you to put theory into practice in a real health care setting, sometimes from your very first year.

Practicing in a Rural Area

Its nice to be in those rural areas, I really got a fondness for it.
The helping people side of things was a big thing for me.
You really get involved in people's lives and community. People see you as a centre if they need help.
