Hands on Health Program

Through The Hands on Health program we work in partnership with 27 schools in the south east of Melbourne to introduce students into careers in the Healthcare industry. We run activities with students from Year 10 to Year 12 to assist them in their decision-making process and support their engagement and knowledge of university and study as well as the healthcare industry.

The program delivers a range of activities that allow students to understand the amount of opportunities available to them when assessing their career journeys in Health.

We achieve this by the following activities
