Year 9 Health Careers Workshops
The Year 9 Health Careers Workshops are facilitated twice each year at our Burnie and Mersey campuses. Each day-long program is delivered by Rural Clinical School staff, students and local health workers to allow participants to discover a number of health professions.
Students elect their chosen health careers and in groups, experience simulated scenarios in Medicine, Pharmacy, Nursing, Pathology, Occupational Therapy, Psychology, Radiography, Oral health, Optometry, Social work, Nutrition and Dietetics, Physiotherapy, Podiatry, Paramedicine, Environmental health and Speech Pathology.
Activities include administering fillings, dressing in gloves, gowns and masks to perform surgery using hospital equipment, suturing techniques, maternity nursing delivery procedures, applying first aid and resuscitation, taking blood pressure, and applying dressings to wounds.
Our Year 9 Health Careers Program - Burnie 2023 was greatly enjoyed by participants, and we are looking forward to the workshops to be held in 2024. Details to be advised.
Unfortunately, Mersey Year 9 Health Careers Program 2023 has been cancelled due to ongoing venue renovations.
