HealthPro careers in health

Are you male and looking for a rewarding and well-paid career that also helps to develop your personal and professional skills?

The HealthPro project is an Office for Students funded initiative, in partnership with Coventry University and NHS Trusts to encourage more males into healthcare professions, bridge the gender gap and remove stereotypes around roles in healthcare.


There are many varied roles within the healthcare sector and your transferrable skills may be highly valuable to one of the many health care providers within the UK and internationally.
