Men in health careers
Many men already work in successful health careers, find out what they enjoy and what advice they would give to others considering a new career
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.
All students on nursing, midwifery and some allied health professions will receive a £5,000 per year non repayable payment from the UK government.
If you are a UK or EU student (those who are ordinarily resident in the EU for the previous 3 years) and start this September on a number of healthcare degree courses including Nursing, Paramedic Science and Occupational Therapy you will receive at least £5000 per year as a non-repayable payment from the Government during the duration of your course.
If you do not currently have the required qualifications for the courses above you could study an access to health and human sciences course.
