Call for Applications
The Health Students’ Council of Western Australia (HSC-WA) is searching for its 2015 Executive Team!
Applications are now open for the positions of Chair, Treasurer and Secretary, which together form the core
executive committee of the Council.
About the HSC-WA
The HSC-WA was founded in 2014 by students from medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, podiatry, nursing and
social work, and aims to foster and facilitate collaboration in advocacy and curriculum development, and
provide networking and academic opportunities for students in the health professions. The HSC-WA
acknowledges that there is a lack of understanding and appreciation for what we can do collectively as
health care professionals. More importantly, we know that students have a desire to be the best health care
providers possible.
Current research supports that together, we can provide better healthcare. The HSC-WA aims to break
down any barriers preventing collaboration through social and professional development events, so that we
can educate each other about our role in health care. Furthermore, the HSC-WA is a platform from which
interprofessional relationships can develop. This is critical not only to ensuring that optimal health care is
achieved, but to ensure each health care professional is utilised to their full potential and is appreciated for
their contribution to the team that supports a patient. Ultimately, it is an exciting collaboration of students
working together to lead a new generation of students with a passion for health care.
We hope that the Council will become an avenue for driving collaboration between students, schools,
faculties and universities in teaching our future health practitioners, and that the 2015 team will have a
strong input into the direction of the organisation in its second year.
