Studying my course at VU helped me redirect my career and get a substantial qualification in a non-clinical field in aged care services. I took a gamble with my first job as a carer in residential aged care and I loved it! I am now undertaking my PhD at VU, looking at older people with depression in order to optimise their wellbeing.Meg Polacsek
