Clinical Placement 3 KHA747



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 third clinical placement unit requires approximately 300 to 400 hours of professional experience at an external placement setting, or settings. Placement settings will encompass a range of client problems, varying age ranges, settings, and use of a variety of clinical skills. More advanced clinical skills, suitable for independent practice as a Registrar working toward Clinical endorsement, will be developed. It is the third and final placement unit in an integrated sequence of placements (totalling 1000 hours) in the clinical training program.
