InspireU Health Sciences

Health is one of Australia’s fastest growing sectors.

From clinical laboratory scientists to public health experts, people with the skills to identify, manage and treat health issues are in high demand. The InspireU Health Science camp provides an opportunity for up to 20 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from schools across Queensland to participate in a number of activities designed to provide an insight into studying health sciences at UQ. 

It also exposes students to the wide range of career and study options available to health science students and graduates. Students take part in a number of activities throughout the week that are both interactive and informative, including sessions on sports psychology, careers in Indigenous health, psychology, nutrition and dietetics, biomedical sciences, human movement, pharmacy and pathology.
