The students travelled overseas as part of TAFE Western's Outbound
Mobility Program. This program provides support for students to
undertake international study tours. It provides students with 'hands

their Australian studies.
Accompanied by head teacher, Debbie Greenhalgh, the students will
take up residency at two of China's leading hospitals. They will be
split into groups and will alternate five-day placements at Shanghai
Redleaf Women's Hospital and American-Sino Obstetrician, Gynaecology
