Plastering, suturing, rehabilitation scenarios and vehicle extrication were just a few of the skills on show for high school students at a series of “Aspire2Health” seminars at Warwick, Stanthorpe, Kingaroy and Dalby throughout August, 2018.

Designed to promote to year 10 students possible career pathways in medicine, nursing or allied health, the seminars were delivered as a collaborative effort by Griffith University, Queensland Rural Medical Education, Southern Queensland Rural Health, University of Queensland Rural Clinical School, Department of Education and Training, University of Southern Queensland and Queensland Ambulance Service.

Students from various schools across the Southern Downs, South Burnett and Western Downs thoroughly enjoyed their respective events and feedback centred around the variety of career options, the feeling of “real life scenario” during simulations and the learning from one-on-one conversations with rural health professionals.
