Koori kids futures

Nepean Blue Mountains Health’s Koori Kids Futures work experience program continues to be a popular first step for local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander high school students keen to begin their careers in health.

The latest cohort of Year 10 and 11 students recently completed the immersive three-day program where they enjoyed rotations across a variety of hospital and health services.

One participant said, “It was one of the best experiences I’ve had. It has confirmed my passion for medicine and I fully intend to pursue a career in medicine.”

Koori Kids is a great opportunity for students to explore their passion for health, caring and medicine. It provides young Aboriginal people with a pathway into pursuing a career with our local health services and remains an important part of the commitment to Closing the Gap.
