How can we better prepare new practitioners to be work-ready and how do we support everyone involved in the process?

Experiential learning and placements help students better understand and apply theory learnt at university. They gain hands on skills and attitudes required for clinical practice and patient-centered care.

Nonetheless, this transition can be a challenging journey for students.


Join us to explore “From Virtual to Reality: The journey to work-readiness”.
