Indigenous students carving out healthy careers

Date posted: 18 November 2013

Indigenous students from Wauchope High School who have an interest in health careers have attended a workshop aimed at providing them with an understanding of the variety of health careers available and the necessary study pathways.

The year 10 students heard from speakers, toured Port Macquarie Base Hospital and attended a workshop, which was a partnership with the Mid North Coast Local Health District and Charles Sturt University.

The aim of the workshop was to encourage more high school students to pursue careers in healthcare. In particular, it is predicted that there will be a shortage of Aboriginal Health Workers in the region, so it is suggested that there will be a large number of position available in the coming years.
