Professional Experience Placement (PEP)
Students will be allocated PEP within individual health care agencies. Students may be expected to relocate and are expected to travel to where PEP is available. 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.
PEP days MAY differ from University of Tasmania calendar semester dates.

This unit is the first in an advanced clinical exercise Work Integrated Learning (WIL) program that prepares you for real-world experience as a Student Exercise Physiologist. You will have graded exposure to the assessment, prescription, and delivery of exercise to clinical clientele through progressive placements starting with observation work and moving to leadership work. Professional Experience Placements (PEP) will occur in the UTAS Exercise Clinic and in University-approved WIL partner agencies, where you will be guided in your clinical education by appropriately qualified University, and agency supervisors. This unit provides an opportunity to develop and extend clinical decision making and communication skills through supervised WIL placements and to develop an understanding of professional practice requirements for an industry environment.
Unit objectives are:
(1) to develop proficiency in communication and behaviour-change counselling techniques with clinical clientele;
(2) to develop clinical reasoning skills, problem-solving and clinical decision-making skills with clinical clientele.
(3) to develop practical screening, assessment and exercise prescription skills with clinical clientele;
(4) To develop professional skills in collaborative practice, self-reflection, and self-direction.
