Career Prospects

How can Applied Mental Health Studies further my career?

Gaining postgraduate qualifications or participating in postgraduate units for professional development purposes is a way of demonstrating your knowledge and expertise to an employer.

Your studies can support career progression or may support a career change from a general setting to the mental health field, or a specialised area within mental health such as working in perinatal, child and youth, adult or older person’s services.

Students from a range of professions such as nursing, speech pathology, early childhood educators, psychology and social work have benefited from our course.

How can the Psychiatric Medicine course further my career?

The Psychiatric Medicine framework is open to doctors who have an interest in enhancing their mental health practice. It may support career progression within the field of mental health as it is a formal demonstration of knowledge and skills. Students who choose to specialise may advance their career with specialist knowledge that is tailored to general practice or rural and remote settings.
