SAHMRI 2020 Work Experience Program
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.

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 our research areas, which may help you when making your career decisions.
SAHMRI will be running three work experience programs in 2020. Each program is of 1 week duration.
