From care of the elderly to working in a general practice, Applied Health Care at WIT gave Aaron Donnelly and "insight into every area of healthcare"
‘I wasn't sure what area of healthcare I wanted to go into leading up to the completion of my Leaving Cert until I found out about the BSc in Applied Healthcare. This course gives you an insight into every area of healthcare via both lectures and work placement.
In first year I completed a placement in a Care of the Older Adult setting whilst in second year I completed my placement in a General Practice.
A very appealing aspect to this course is that you can interact with the lecturers and if you ever need help with something all you need do is send them a quick email and they will respond to you very quickly.
The BSc in Applied Healthcare offers students a very unique Degree as you are not restricted to one area of healthcare. Many career possibilities exist such as sales representatives for pharmaceutical companies; managing General Practices; post graduate study in health or nursing; and health research.
Upon competition of this course I hope to either continue my study in nursing or work within a General Practice.’
