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.
