Event description

Description

Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences logoVictorian Clinical Science Symposium.

Following the success of the sold-out inaugural Victorian Clinical Science Symposium in 2016, Life as a Clinician-Scientist: The Best of Both Worlds has now been established as an annual event in Victoria - and has inspired similar events in other states across Australia!

We are back for 2017 with a one-day symposium for medical students, junior doctors and PhD students focusing on the intersection between clinical medicine and science. The day will encourage and inspire medical students and doctors to get involved in research, and workshop the skills necessary to succeed in combining clinical practice with research. Life as a Clinician Scientist, organised by the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences, will once again bring together students and doctors from different universities and hospitals to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on July 29 2017 for a day of discussion, learning and upskilling.

EARLYBIRD TICKETS (AVAILABLE UNTIL MAY 31) ARE HEAVILY SUBSIDISED TO ONLY $15 AND INCLUDE A GOURMET COOKED LUNCH!

We have carefully crafted a program that has something for everyone - both those who attended LACS in 2016, and those who are coming for the first time! Whether you are considering doing research or are already involved in research and perhaps wondering how to translate your results or thesis into a publication, poster or platform, this symposium will be relevant and applicable.

The day will open with an introduction by Professor Ingrid Scheffer AO and keynote talks from Professor Stephen Davis (Professor of Translational Neuroscience, University of Melbourne) and Professor Christina Mitchell (Dean, FMNHS, Monash University). The morning session, 'What does a clinician-scientist look like?" will feature talks from academics from a range of specialties and each speaker will give a vignette of their own research in addition to their speaking topic. The afternoon session, "What skills does a clinician-scientist need?" will feature skills workshops including "how to get your research published", "how to give a great talk", "how to build a research question", and a panel on the varied career of a clinician-scientist.

New in 2017: During an extended lunch break (more time to enjoy the plated gourmet lunch - a highlight on feedback from last year!) we are facilitating networking opportunities between attendees and the world-class research institutes that call Melbourne home. We have invited all Victorian medical research institutes to hold a stall in our break-out area - an incredible opportunity for you to find out more about a particular field, and perhaps even meet your mentor or find that next step on your pathway to life as a clinician-scientist. Each institute will also provide 3 posters that best represent the breadth and depth of their institute's research activities - speakers such as Prof Scheffer will be leading poster tours throughout the lunch break.

Speakers include:

  • Professor Ingrid Scheffer AO - Director of Paediatrics, Austin Health & Professor of Paediatric Neurology, University of Melbourne. Vice-President, Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences. Pioneered our understanding of the genetics of epilepsy & led worldwide epilepsy re-classification.

  • Professor Christina Mitchell - Academic Vice-President and Dean, Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, Monash University. Trained as a physician scientist specialising in clinical haematology, currently researching the role of lipid phosphatases in development and human disease.

  • Professor Stephen Davis - Professor of Translational Neuroscience, University of Melbourne & Director of Neurosciences, Royal Melbourne Hospital. Recognised for his work leading clinical trials that investigate the use of neuroimaging in the selection of acute stroke treatments, he has recently been elected President of the World Stroke Association.

  • We have put together a full program containing Victoria's leading clinician-scientists from a range of fields!

Spaces are limited (and early-bird pricing even more so!), so register now for an inspiring day of medicine & science, with lunch, morning & afternoon tea provided.

    Please don't hesitate to contact us at vicclinicalscience@aahms.org if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you on the day!
