Whanganui Hospital Health Career Day


Each year, Whanganui Hospital hosts the annual WDHB Health Careers Day for Whanganui’s Year 11 and 12 secondary school students. The day is about sharing information and supporting rangatahi to plan their career pathway into health and invest in the future of the Whanganui community.

In 2014, the event attracted around 100 rangatahi who met with approximately 30 clinical and non-clinical Whanganui DHB staff working in a range of different roles at varying levels within local health services.

The students formed six breakout groups which moved around the health profession stands listening to staff telling then about the various health professions available and given the opportunity to ask questions.
