Clifton Hunter High School students learn about healthcare careers

(CNS Local Life): The Cayman Islands Health Services Authority (HSA) was tempting Clifton Hunter High School students into the healthcare profession last week at the school’s career fair. HSA’s interactive booth featured displays from various departments throughout the authority, including the pathology laboratory, dental unit, dietary services and EMS. Experts from each of the departments were on hand to talk about their job roles and to distribute career leaflets highlighting clinical and non-clinical careers in healthcare, the qualifications needed and opportunities for growth.

“We are always willing and excited to do our part to nurture the next generation of healthcare professionals in the Cayman Islands and to help them to gain a better understanding of the skills and education required for jobs in the field,” said Communications Officer Monique Spence. “We also want to bring greater awareness to the non-clinical career opportunities and the medical specialties that are available.”

Cayman Islands Further Education Centre (CIFEC) Career Services Manager Heather-Ann Cahill thanked the HSA for supporting the Career Fair. She said it was “a tremendous success” because of the active engagement.

Students also learned about the hospital’s summer internship programme, which will open for registration on 1 March.
