Peter Mac has just wrapped up another successful year of careers evenings and days for radiation therapy, nuclear medicine, diagnostic imaging and medical physics.
Over the three events Peter Mac's experts shared their knowledge, experience and enthusiasm with over 300 people from across the state at our Moorabbin, Bendigo and Parkville campuses.
Health care professionals from Radiation Therapy, Nuclear Medicine, Medical Imaging and Radiation Oncology Medical Physics were on hand representing both Peter Mac and their profession.
University representatives from Monash, RMIT and Deakin were also at Peter Mac to support and guide prospective students in their choice of career and study pathway.
There were tours of the Parkville Radiation Therapy and Cancer Imaging facilities for approximately 200 people, consisting of students and their parents, families and careers teachers.
Students travelled from local suburbs with some coming from as far away as Myrtleford, Hamilton, Wodonga and Wangaratta.
There were around 50 people from 12 local schools and universities attending the information session and departmental tours.
Importantly the night also represented a collaboration between Peter Mac and Monash staff and highlighted the cooperative approach taken to patient care.
Over 30 people attended the evening, with students and families attending from all Bendigo senior schools and some from Kyneton. Some attendees even travelled from Melbourne to see how the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre operates in a regional hospital.
The evening was well received, with tours explaining how the high-tech equipment works to deliver precision cancer treatment and how the radiation professions deliver excellent patient care.
A massive thanks to everyone who supported our open day events.
