Last week four Year 10 students had the opportunity to be part of the annual Aspire to Health Day that was held at the Warwick Hospital.

The Aspire to Health program, which was run jointly by Qld Rural Medical Education Ltd, Department of Education, Small Business and Training, Griffith University, USQ and The University of Qld, invited high school students from the region to tour the hospital and participate in simulated clinical learning.

During the day the students had the opportunity to speak with university students and a range of practising health professionals in areas such as Nursing, Midwifery, Medicine, Paramedicine, Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology, Dietician and Allied Health workers about their careers choice and pathways to medicine.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable and informative day, especially when the students were able to take part in the clinical scenarios where they were able to take part in practical session to learn about CPR, Suturing, Plastering and Allied Health skills.
