SAHMRI provides work experience as an opportunity for participants to gain an understanding in health and medical research and the transformation of research into health outcomes. The SAHMRI work experience program has been developed for the students to work in a variety of research themes including Heart Health, Cancer, Lysosomal Diseases Research Unit and Nutrition and Metabolism.
In 2017 we are offering a limited number of students from Australian high schools who are currently undertaking Year 11 or Year 12 the opportunity for a work experience placement. You will gain a practical understanding of the different types of work in a research area, which may help you when making your career decisions.
The work experience program will be held during two separate, one week programs in 2017.
Week 1: 3 - 7 July 2017
Week 2: 25 - 29 September 2017
Please submit your application at least one month in advance of your desired placement. Work experience placements should be arranged as part of your school’s recognised work-experience program.
