YMC Healthcare Challenge is another edition in the YMC Career Workshop Series.
This time, students were exposed to various career opportunities in healthcare, including but not limited to being a doctor. They had a chance to test-drive six healthcare professions, including Medicine, Nursing, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Pharmacy and Diagnostic Radiography.
More than 20 young healthcare professionals and university students volunteered to deliver this workshop, also serving as role models for the secondary school youths participating.
The workshop engaged participants with a hands-on learning experience by teaching various biomedical sciences from different healthcare fields. Participants were able to test and apply this new knowledge in a simulated hospital setting. The students also experienced the different professions by being involved in the holistic care of a patient and understand the role that each profession plays through this process.
