Get insight into jobs in healthcare sector

ARE you thinking about working in health?

Want to learn more about different health careers, and hear from real staff who work in the local area?
At Bankstown’s ‘Careers in Health’ night this month, you will be able to meet and speak to real health professionals and learn about what it’s like to work in the health system.
You’ll also hear about which degrees they studied and where they went to university so you can consider your options for study after leaving high school.
The night will feature presentations by health professionals including doctors, midwives, nurses, occupational therapists, pharmacists, physiotherapists, social workers and speech pathologists.
This is the perfect event for anyone in high school who is interested or just curious about working in health. Parents and school staff are welcome to attend.
Junior doctor Avinesh Chelliah said: “Our purpose is to showcase the wide range of careers that exist in health, especially within the hospital, to inspire young people in the Canterbury-Bankstown community and empower them with valuable career information.
“I wanted to become a doctor because of the unique relationships they have with patients, from their very first visit to their GP or hospital through a journey of assessment, diagnosis and management.
“I’ve also discovered what a privilege it is to work alongside other allied health professionals like nurses, pharmacists and physiotherapists. Managing patients in a team allows each member to offer their own expertise and learn from others which I’ve found incredibly valuable.”
The expo is on offer on Tuesday, November 19, 5-9pm (arrive at 4.30pm to allow time for parking) in the Auditorium, Level 4, Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital, Eldridge Road, Bankstown.
