The Program

Hands on Health Program

Since 2011, the Hands on Health program has been engaging young people with the world of careers in health. The program provides a variety of hands on activities for students from Year 9 to 12 to foster aspirations to tertiary education and the healthcare industry. The program particularly focuses on young people from communities who are under-represented in the health professions. In the end, we want our future health workforce to better reflect the society and communities they serve.

We achieve this by the following activities






Year 9

Hands on Health Discovery


A 1-hour incursion where students use anatomy models and games to learn about the human body and participate in interactive activities about careers in health.
