School Visits

What are the rural school visits?

The rural school visits are the primary initiative of Hauora Taiwhenua Rural Health Network’s Rural Health Careers Promotion programme.

The rural school visits, led by Hauora Taiwhenua in partnership with the Students of Rural Health Aotearoa Chapter and funded by Te Whatu Ora, aim to encourage young people in rural areas to study a health discipline at a tertiary level.

This initiative involves groups of tertiary health students touring rural regions to visit rural schools, practices, hospitals, and other health providers in the area. During these visits, the tertiary students host interactive health career workshops with school pupils from year 9 to 13.

These workshops are an opportunity for the tertiary students to share their advice and experience, to showcase the career opportunities available in health, and to inspire rural young people to consider pursuing a career in health.
