Students at Canobolas Rural Technology High School were given a look behind the curtain at some of Orange's most important medical facilities on Thursday.
Fourteen students took part in the Health Career Academy Program run by University of Sydney's School of Rural Health, touring Dudley Private Hospital, the Orange Aboriginal Medical Service and completing a skills session at the School of Rural Health's Bloomfield campus.
HCAP was developed to introduce secondary school students to health careers and encourage health career aspirations and attainment and program manager Kath Naden has already run many of the academies with schools previously in the Far West and now in the Central West.
Canobolas RTS student Relea Glanford, who's looking to study genetics, said she'd enjoyed the excursion.
"We were doing a lot of stuff, talking to a lot of the medical people, just learning about all the different roles there are in just one medical centre," she said.
