- making health, wellbeing and illness prevention widely available;
- developing and participating in activities which promote health care education to people from all backgrounds.
Students in Transition Year are invited to a three-day programme jointly held in the University and University Hospital Limerick.
The Teddy Bear Hospital provides children with the opportunity to interact with medical students in a safe and fun environment while learning more about medicine. The aim of the project is to alleviate childhood anxiety surrounding hospitals and doctors.
What does a physiotherapist or a nurse do? What a hospital look like? Or a University? Why is it important that children adopt health promoting behaviours in their early years? How do they champion these in their schools and with their friends and family?
During the two-day camp, pupils discover more about Nursing and Midwifery as potential career choices.
Students in Transition Year are invited to attend lectures and talks in the Education & Health Sciences Faculty
This is a workshop day for post-primary schools who are enacting the LCPE curriculum.
