The Northern Territory Medicare Local is now taking applications for university health students to fly to the Northern Territory to connect with high school students to promote health careers. Participating uni students will have the opportunity to present workshops to high school students to demonstrate the challenges and rewards of health careers, and also share their own experiences about the transition into university. Twelve undergraduate or postgraduate medical, nursing and allied health students will be chosen to participate, with applications closing on the 2nd April 2014.
Two Northern Territory Rural High School Visits are scheduled for May 2014:
- Central Australia: 10th-17th May
- Top End: 24th-31st May
For more information, or to apply for the Rural High School Visits in the Northern Territory, go to the Northern Territory Medicare Local website.
