Do you have a creative background? Consider a health career!

13th January 2020

CUREate is an Office for Students funded project that seeks to raise awareness of the health professions amongst those with creative backgrounds and encourage entry into university-level study.

CUREate seeks to prompt conversations about what the health and creative disciplines have in common. This is to challenge established notions about entry routes into health, both at an institutional and personal level, and encourage entry at a time of transformation.

Health professions bring creativity to life, and creatives bring life to the health professions. The project framework seeks to highlight the affinity between the two disciplines with the aim of encouraging creatives to consider entry into health.

Alison Gardiner

Specialist Podiatrist for Homeless and Vulnerable People and Artist said:

“I feel that I use my creativity every day at work, especially as a podiatrist which is very ‘hands on’ and requires fine hand/eye coordination.  It gives me great satisfaction to use my creative skills to help people / change things within my organisation and at the same time to satisfy my interest in medicine, science and facts!”
