Are you an allied health (nursing, OT, pharmacy, physiotherapy, speech, etc) student? Are you interested in learning about rural or remote placements and work and hearing about the scholarships on offer?
Then come along to TROHPIQ’s Allied Health Discussion Night, Tuesday 16th August. You do not have to be a TROHPIQ member to attend.
WHEN: Tuesday 16th August, starting 6pm.
WHERE: Forgan Smith Building (01), Room E109 at St Lucia UQ Campus
We open the evening with insights from several speakers as to what it is like to live and work in a rural or remote setting. These guests include:
- A fourth-year physiotherapy student and Vice President of TROHPIQ
- A final-year speech pathology student and rural scholarship holder
- A registered nurse
- A rural pharmacy speaker
- A rural occupational therapy speaker
We then have presentations by TROHPIQ, SARRAH and Rural Health Connections Queensland about scholarships and incentives each organisation offers students to encourage them to take rural placements and eventually work rurally.
TROHPIQ then provide free food and drink and time to talk to any of the speakers in a less formal setting. We are also giving out free bags containing information and goodies relating to rural health and TROHPIQ and selling membership for those interested in becoming more involved.
So come along and listen to some great speakers, learn about amazing scholarships, and grab some free food, drink and goodies.
