The Challenges and Rewards of Working in Global Health
This half-day Symposium will bring together Doherty Researchers and Clinicians who work in lower-middle income countries to discuss both the challenges and rewards of working in these regions.
It is hoped that the Symposium will identify:
Opportunities for new collaborations.
Common obstacles that we can support each other with in the future.
Overseas institutes that the Doherty should strengthen relationships with.
The Symposium is open to all Doherty staff and students who are interested or currently engaged in Global Health.
