The Program

Hands on Health Program

Since 2011, the Hands on Health program has worked in partnership with over 26 schools in the south east of Melbourne. The Hands on Health program provides a variety of activities for students from Year 9 to Year 12 to support their engagement with tertiary education and the health care industry. The program aims to increase exposure to health careers particularly for students from under-represented groups such as low socio-economic, indigenous, refugee or asylum seeker backgrounds.

We achieve this by the following activities






Year 9

Learn about the human body.

Anatomy models and games.
