Otago/Southland Region

September 4, 2023 - September 8, 2023

Applications open for Otago/Southland Rural School Visits!

Our Rural Health Careers Promotion programme is touring in the Otago/Southland Region!

The Students of Rural Health Aotearoa (SoRHA) are looking for applicants to sign up for the Rural School Visits in the Otago/Southland region, departing from Dunedin on Monday 4th to Friday 8th of September. We are looking for tertiary health volunteer students who are passionate about rural health and are keen to share their enthusiasm with the rural community.

Closer to the date we will finalise the towns and locations we will be touring.

Application form:

If you are a school or clinic practice in this region or these towns, please feel free to contact if you wish to get involved with the programme.

The Rural School Visits is an interactive workshop where volunteer tertiary health students majoring in a range of health professions (i.e. dental, nursing, physiotherapy, etc) who have come from rural backgrounds or are interested in working rurally after graduation, will give a 1-2 hour  workshop with fun activities teaching year 9 – 13 students about human anatomy, and what it’s like studying medicine and health – all through practical techniques that they’d use in real rural health careers (i.e. checking blood pressure, making dental molds, etc).
