Why study Health Psychology?

This field prepares you for practice in health psychology through a combination of coursework and supervised practice. Health psychologists may work on health promotion campaigns with the government and NGOs, while others work with clients in hospital settings or in private practice. They assist clients who may have chronic pain, chronic disease or require palliative care. The work of health psychologists is constantly expanding as the work of promoting good health and managing illness develops.

Accreditation for the Graduate Diploma in Psychological Practice and six specialisations is currently being sought from the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council and is expected to be confirmed in 2017.
