The health industry is incredibly rewarding yet can be a mentally draining area to work in. Take it from Natasha Jennings of the Alfred Hospital’s Emergency and Trauma Centre, who shared her typical day online at Health Victoria. Her exhausting day begins at 5am and she is seeing patients as soon as she steps into the hospital. With such an exhaustive schedule, how could she possibly engage in professional development if it wasn’t for online learning?
With the many occupational demands of health professionals, how do we stay on top of our careers?
Just as technology has made it possible for us to continually push the boundaries in the world of medicine and health care, technology has led to incredible gains in the delivery of education and Monash are proud to be at the forefront of this innovation with Monash Online.
Studying online has numerous benefits, not least the ability to study both in and out of the office and from the comfort of your own home. Monash Online provides all learners with access to instructors and fellow students through discussion forums, chat and video.
