Study Allied Health

Transcript

Hi, I’m Dr Mel Hayman. I'm the head of course for bachelor of allied health here at CQUniversity. I'm also a researcher within the physical activity research group and the Appleton Institute.

So there's a lot of practical elements within our Bachelor of Allied Health because practical skills are such an important skill set for allied health professionals.

So we have practical elements integrated within our anatomy and physiology unit. But we also have placements and professional placements or work integrated learning and our students get to do that in year one or year two and then again in year three where they go on a professional placement.

So there's actually a few unique features about our course that people cannot get anywhere else. The first is the integration of the Certificate III in Allied Health. The second is that at six of our first year units, we're also delivered to speech, OT, podiatry and physiotherapy which means that we have really strong study pathways and opportunities for students to transition from the Bachelor of Health into those disciplines and also for those students within those disciplines to be able to transfer back into the Bachelor of Allied Health if they want a more, if they're interested in providing a broader service to healthcare.

I'm Dr Tom Doering, a lecturer in allied health and active researcher in health and exercise sciences at CQUniversity.

Being in allied health is a really great area to be in. What excites me is being able to help a lot of people so, for example as an allied health professional I’ve been able to see people that are wheelchair-bound being able to stand those types of things, helping people with high blood pressure reduce their blood pressure. Being at the forefront being on the ground working with people on a daily basis that's what really excites me about allied health.

The bachelor of Allied Health allows students to study online which is one of its highlights I think, because it's able to target people that aren't able to commit to face-to-face. So we can reach people in rural regional remote areas and we can work work with them to be able to fulfill their dreams and that they can complete a Bachelor of Allied Health. So we are recognised as one of the leading universities in distance education which means that we have established platforms and we are able to provide really good quality education to our distance students.
