Students learn how to test for vital signs

Our unique and very popular one day Hospital Experience Workshop will give your students a range of information about the many Health professions. Real life stories from hospital health professionals and from current university students will inspire and motivate them. Your students will have the opportunity to interact with all the speakers to find out what their work is really like. 

What will we do in this workshop?

Health careers - Students will gain a greater understanding of the Health careers available, the future opportunities and hospital working environment. The program includes interactive experiences to give students a greater understanding of particular jobs and skills needed to be a Health professional. 

Vital signs activity - Students will undertake this hands-on activity to experience base-level skills required of many Health professionals.

Students will rotate through three different Health career stations about (determined by availability of staff and students at the hospital) to really find out more information on those particular fields of employment. The stations covered can range from Allied Health areas such as Dietetics, Health Promotion, Occupational Therapy, Optometry, Oral Health, Paramedicine, Physiotherapy, and Psychology, to Clinical Health areas such as Medicine, Nursing, and many more.
