High School to Health Careers Program

If you’re a university student looking for a career in health, the High School to Health Careers Program (HSHCP) is a great way to experience the Northern Territory and explore opportunities in healthcare you never thought were possible.

The High School to Health Careers Program (HSHCP) gives students studying a health discipline an opportunity to:

  • Visit high schools in the Northern Territory and deliver hands-on workshops that promote health careers to school students,
  • Meet health professionals and learn from their experiences in rural and remote health, and
  • Participate in Indigenous cultural experiences.
