The Royal Melbourne Hospital offers work experience to secondary school students (in years 10 to 12) and university students from universities with existing links to the hospital.
Successful students are provided with the opportunity to spend one week working within available departments to observe and where possible participate in the daily activities of those departments.
The Royal Melbourne Hospital receives over 200 requests for work experience and are only able to secure approximately 20 placements each year. Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee placements to all students.
How do I apply?
Applications for Secondary Work Experience are open during December every year.
Students are encouraged to apply for single work experience positions and explain their interest in that particular field in their cover letter.
To apply, visit the Melbourne Health recruitment website and search for "work experience".
