The RCS hosted the annual Year 9 Health Careers Workshops in Burnie on 2nd October 2012 and in Latrobe on 19th October 2012.
Around 80 students attended each workshop and were exposed to a variety of interactive sessions presented by a large amount of health professionals and RCS students, across a broad spectrum of health careers.
The main message at the workshops is that health careers are wide and varied, and not limited to the traditional fields of Nursing and Medicine.
The workshops are run in partnership with the Tasmanian Health Organisation - North West, with professional health staff volunteering their time to contribute career advice to the workshop participants, and the Tasmanian Department of Education, through the Pathway Planning Program.
On their site the ABC have photos of the event and a link to a recording of the radio broadcast, click on the below link;
