- Posted by Fearghal Quinn
- Posted in Careers Blog
This Healthcare Careers virtual work experience programme will help you take your first steps into the world of healthcare careers. It is live, giving you the chance to interact with healthcare professionals, but from the comfort and safety of your own home.
During the work experience day, students will follow 2 patients from their initial presentation to recovery. Students will observe the healthcare professionals as they interact with the patients and each other. Students will have an opportunity to ask questions and gain knowledge through teaching. This will help students to make an informed career decision as well as learn about how healthcare professionals work together as part of a multidisciplinary team.
Each work experience day is completely different, and students will be able to build on their knowledge of NHS careers as they see different patient cases and healthcare professionals work in a variety of settings, such as hospital and community.
Students will also receive certificates as evidence of having participated in the work experience programme. Those that complete the entire 6-month programme will be awarded with Highly Commended References too. Students can register individually through the website link below.
Places are £10 a day to cover administrative costs and run the tech on the day. Students can register for the programme here: https://alliedhealthmentor.org/nhs-healthcare-careers-virtual-work-experience/
