Health students hit the dusty trail
Two Faculty of Health students recently took part in the National Rural Heath Students Network annual Northern Territory rural high school visit.
Rebecca Gaston (pictured), a nursing and midwifery honours student and Stephen Langley, a second year physiotherapy student were part of a 12 student group who travelled to the Northern Territory in April and visited several schools.
The aim of the annual visit, now in its tenth year, is to talk to high school students about studying at university and working in the health profession.
As part of their experience, Rebecca and Stephen coordinated health careers workshop at several high schools in Alice Springs, Hermannsburg and Tennant Creek. The workshops provided an overview of career paths in health care and discussed how to overcome any perceived barriers to participating in higher education.
