Junior Health Sciences Academy ‘Early Careers’ Webinar

A Chara

The Junior Health Sciences Academy ‘Early Careers’ Webinar will be held on 1st and 2nd March 2022, via Zoom.

What it is?

This is a virtual event, hosted by the Health Sciences Academy in conjunction with the Limerick & Clare Education & Training Board and Limerick Education Centre, and aims to provide information on careers and programmes of study in health.

We realise that Transition Year students cannot come to hospitals or other clinical settings for work experience, and so we have created this event to be as informative and interactive as possible, showcasing healthcareas an option for further study and career.


The event timetable is available here https://www.ul.ie/hsa/upcoming-events

Who is it for?

It is for Transition Year and Fifth year students who are curious to learn more about a career in healthcare and studying health sciences in University of Limerick.

What will students learn?

Students will hear from healthcare staff who are working in hospital and community settings describing their day, their career journey and advice for anyone interested in pursuing healthcare as a career.

They will also hear from students in University of Limerick who are studying health sciences programmes including -

  • Nursing
  • Midwifery
  • Medicine
  • Physiotherapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Speech and language therapy
  • Human nutrition & dietetics
  • Occupational therapy
  • Psychology

University of Limerick staff will also be on hand to give advice on programmes and entry requirements.

There will be guest interviews with local sports stars and students, sharing their experience of healthcare professionals and their journey. On the event day, there will be opportunities for interaction with speakers through the Q&A function and other interactive tools such as polls etc.
