High School Health Adventure

High School Health Adventure is a program that has been designed to create a realistic experience of 'a day in the life' of a health professional. The utilization of simulation with manikins, skills stations, digital technology and case-based scenarios help to create this real-world learning in a unique environment for high school students.

Students will have access to current practicing clinicians including medical officers, nurses, midwives, physiotherapist, pharmacists, social workers and occupational therapist, who will be able to share their experience as a health professional and provide an opportunity for the students to ask questions.

This program is delivered on-site at Mater Education’s world class medical simulation facility. You will spend the day immersed in this fast-paced world, learning about healthcare.
