The Health Careers Day at the Royal Darwin Hospital was a fantastic opportunity which I thoroughly enjoyed. We covered areas like physiotherapy, midwifery, speech pathology, radiology and pharmacy, investigating the inner workings of the different fields and the qualifications required. The interactive activities were the best part and I experienced everything from delivering a baby to taking a leisurely stroll through a giant human ear. I was able to delve into the sheer volume of health careers available and learned about the specific roles in broad fields such as nursing.
I highly recommend this event to all students, whether they are looking at a future in healthcare or are simply curious about the different aspects of the medical industry.
