Bachelor of Clinical Exercise Physiology (Honours)

Meet Georgia Perkins

UniSA Clinical Exercise Physiology graduate, Exercise Physiologist, Helping Hand

NOW

Georgia Perkins’ placement at Helping Hand has led her to a career as an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) at the aged care facility.

“Clinical Exercise Physiology is quite a new field and many people are unaware of who we are, what we do and how we can benefit individuals. I am proud that myself and other AEPs have helped to educate staff from other fields such as nursing, on their perceptions of exercise prescription. Now, many of the staff that work closely with the residents cannot believe the changes they have noticed in them after seeing what we are capable of.” 

Georgia is inspired by the small achievements that the residents get out of the exercise.

“It’s very rewarding when a resident smiles, laughs and is calm whilst exercising.”

"






 

I always had an interest in health and exercise so this degree was perfect for me. I get to improve the health of others through exercise whilst sharing my passion with them – it’s very rewarding."

THEN

Georgia always had an interest in health and exercise, and heard great things about UniSA’s health and science degrees.

“I always had an interest in health and exercise so this degree was perfect for me. I get to improve the health of others through exercise whilst sharing my passion with them.” 

Undertaking a range of placements was a great learning experience for Georgia.

“My placements were quite varied, allowing me to enhance my knowledge and skills. My placement at Helping Hand enabled me to become more comfortable communicating with clients who had some form of cognitive decline. Another placement involved working with people who had neurological injuries, disabilities or conditions. I also did a placement in the Riverland and it was great seeing how exercise physiology services could benefit smaller communities.”
