Faculty of Health Sciences Sydney Health Leaders Aims and Goals

The Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) has many initiatives to enable student involvement in leadership roles and activities to facilitate personal development and support students to transition to university. This proposal is another such opportunity.

The Sydney Health Leaders aims to facilitate the development of excellence in leadership in FHS students. We achieve this aim by being inclusive and offering students, who engage in activities that are additional to the requirements of their degree, the option of attaining tangible recognition for their involvement in leadership activities as well as formal training in leadership skills.

Benefits of the Program

Participants involved in the Sydney Health Leaders program will have a richer experience at university and in addition to completing their degree they will have the opportunity to develop valuable skills in leadership and communication as well as interpersonal skills. The Sydney Health Leaders Program will also build on the university generic attributes, specifically in Global Citizenship.

Graduates with evidence of development of leadership attributes, communication and interpersonal skills outside the requirements of their degree are likely to have a competitive advantage in the employment market.

Opportunities provided to students

The Sydney Health Leaders Program provides opportunities for students who become involved in activities of the faculty and wider university to gain recognition of their involvement.

Activities that contribute to achievements in the Sydney Health Leaders Program are co-curricular and extracurricular. Participants in the Sydney Health Leaders Program will also have the opportunity to meet new people, develop new friends and contacts, learn about leadership, develop new interests, and appreciate the bigger picture of health, patient care, primary health care and the health of communities.
