An initiative of the NRHSN and Health Careers in the Bush the rural high school visits occur twice a year in which health students from HOPE4HEALTH visit rural high schools to be health student mentors for students considering a career in health. The program is extremely well received by the students with many having fun doing plastering, strapping and testing reflexes while learning about the different pathways possible to obtain a career in health. The volunteers have a great time interacting with the students while having the opportunity to see rural Australia.
HOPE4HEALTH will be running two Rural High School visits in the coming months, one to Gympie/Monto/Kingaroy and another one to Charleville. The trips are a lot of fun and involve educating high school students about a career in health plus you also get the chance to see the sights of rural Queensland. We are looking for enthusiastic students from any health discipline to attend the trips. More information will be provided soon. In the meantime if you are interested in going please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
