High school engagement

High school students learn about being a doctorWork Experience programs offered in conjunction with Education Queensland and/or Queensland Health, link high school students with current medical students and local clinicians building aspirations about a career in medicine. 

High school students learn from and talk with local medical students and clinicians. They learn about what it is like to be a rural doctor, what they need to do to get there and some basic clinical skills. 

Each of our UQRCS sites offers slightly different work experience programs. Bundaberg and Hervey Bay partner with Wide Bay Health and Hospital Services through the Bundaberg and Maryborough Hospitals. Hervey Bay has also developed Dr4ADay. Rockhampton offers Experience Medicine@UQ and Toowoomba has been running SWEP (Student Work Experience Program) for over five years.
