Due to preparations being taken in the response to COVID-19 the decision has been made to cancel the 2020 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 and allow participants to discover a number of health professions.
