Program outline

Students from a range of disciplines are invited to apply including:

  • Business

  • Project management
  • Human resources
  • Finance
  • Aboriginal studies
  • Policy development

Applicants in other non-clinical fields are urged to contact Luke Riches on (08) 9222 4393 to discuss if their studies are relevant.

Cadets will be required to complete twelve week’s (60 days) work experience each calendar year, comprising one day per week each semester and block attendance during semester breaks.

In return for completing 60 days work experience over 12 months, cadets will receive a Level 2.1 $52,579 pro-rata salary throughout the 12 month period. If you meet all of the DEEWR requirements, throughout the year you will receive an additional $12,000 annually, paid in fortnightly instalments as an allowance and $500 per semester towards books and equipment.

Senior WA Health staff will also provide cadets with a supportive network, offering advice and encouragement throughout the cadetship.
