Health sector opportunities for students

Health sector opportunities for students


The West Coast District Health Board is reaffirming its commitment to the next generation of health tertiary students with the 2014 West Coast Health Scholarship and Studentship Awards.

Award facilitator Marion Davis says the awards are offered to any New Zealand tertiary students who are studying in undergraduate health related careers and have at some stage resided on the West Coast.

The “scholarships” are 20 grants of $500 each towards health-related educational material (books etc). Five of the 20 scholarships will be available to students with Maori or Pacific Island heritage.

The four “studentships” each comprise a six week supervised project-based work placement with the West Coast DHB, from 17 November to 24 December this year, earning the student $5000 gross. One of the four studentships will be available to students with Maori or Pacific Island heritage.

“This is a great work experience opportunity for students,” West Coast DHB Chief Medical Officer Carol Atmore says. “They get to put into practice the skills they’ve been learning and as is often the case, the type of projects they might be working on in a rural area like the West Coast is hugely varied.”

Applications for the awards close on 31 August 2014. Find out more about this year’s scholarship and studentship programmes by visiting www.westcoastdhb.health.nz.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
