Medic alert

Kelly's brave career change is paying off, thanks to VU's pathways.

"After eight years as a chef, it took a family member's accident for me to realise my calling was in paramedics. I chose VU because of its excellent name in the industry and because I valued the emphasis they put on hands-on learning.

I found the pathway from TAFE into the degree was invaluable for my development.

My first job in the industry was working as an ambulance attendant with Paramedic Services Victoria. I am now working as a graduate paramedic with Ambulance Victoria.

I love being on the road. I constantly get to help and interact with people from different walks of life.

At VU you put in practice what you've learned straight away which is so important in developing real skills for the workplace."
