Centre for Adolescent Health recently welcomed its new cohort of Adolescent Health and Welfare students for 2012, with a two day orientation. Taking advantage of the hospital’s new facilities, the orientation was held in the Vernon Collins Lecture Theatre a state-of-the-art learning space and afterward were treated to a guided tour of the new RCH.
The 48 students from around Australia were introduced to the course, run through the University of Melbourne by the Director of the Centre for Adolescent Health, Susan Sawyer. This was followed by two days of subject lectures, writing and online learning training, getting to know you activities and informal drinks at Rydges Hotel. Having a high level of applicants to the course we have come away with a high calibre of students and we look forward to seeing their achievements throughout the year.
