Galway University Hospitals hosting Careers Evening for secondary school pupils

Galway University Hospitals will be holding a Careers Evening for secondary school students in Galway City and County interested in healthcare this week.

A group of health and social care professionals at Galway University Hospitals will be giving students an insight into different fields of healthcare and what they require.

Students will gain an insight into careers in Occupational Therapy, Social Work, Physiotherapy, Speech and Language Therapy and Dietetics and Nutrition and get the chance to speak with people from each area.

In addition third level students, who are undertaking courses in the relevant fields, will be available to give an overview of what student life is like when undertaking these courses.

The Careers Day will take place on Wedneday, November 6 from 6pm in the Clinical Sciences Institute on the grounds of UHG.

Anne Marie Lydon, Physiotherapy Practice Tutor said ‘’Feedback from attendees and guidance counsellors at last year’s evening was overwhelmingly positive.”

“Attendees said it provided insights into the daily life of a professional that isn’t obvious from a college prospectus or a course syllabus.”

“We were delighted to welcome 140 students last year and hope that we offered inspiration to the next generation of health and social care professionals.”

Students may attend one or more of the free presentations, but must register their place ahead of time at the links provided.

The timetable for the presentations by each specialty is listed below:

6pm-6.30pm: Occupational Therapy


6.30pm-7pm: Social Work


7pm-7.30pm: Physiotherapy


7.30pm-8pm: Speech and Language Therapy


8pm-8.30pm: Nutrition and Dietetics


Places can also be registered by going to Eventbrite.com, searching for ‘HSCP’ and then selecting from the list of specialties.
