Current Recruitment and Community Engagement Activities

Health Sciences Career Development Project

The project is designed to identify and engage Indigenous senior secondary students in structured learning activities and a work exposure program which informs their choices about tertiary study and careers in health sciences. The program will be interactive and include authentic experiences of careers in health sciences.

The program will include:

  • 2 days of work exposure in health care settings such as allied health departments in hospitals, community settings, private health organizations and University research laboratories. If possible, existing Indigenous health professionals and graduates will be used as mentors during these student placements.
  • One day of activities, lectures and tours about health sciences programs at Sydney University.
  • One day information sessions about the Cadigal admission and support programs, accommodation options, scholarships and financial support.
  • Follow up visits to Schools in Term 3 to discuss career aspirations and assist students to complete UAC and Cadigal application forms and scholarship application forms.
