Description

2019 VICTORIAN CLINICAL SCIENCE SYMPOSIUM

Life as a Clinician Scientist is excited to be back in 2019 with a one-day symposium for biomedical, medical and clinical students, junior doctors, clinical trainees and PhD/honours students - focusing on the intersection between clinical medicine and science. Clinician-scientists have the best of both worlds: by being able to use their clinical expertise to inform their research focus, they can maximise the impact of their research discoveries for the benefit of their current and future patients.

Hear from our exciting line-up of world leaders in research and clinical practice at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on Saturday 19 October, 2019 for a day of inspiration, learning and upskilling.

The symposium will encourage and inspire medical, health and science students and trainees to get involved in research, and workshop the skills necessary to succeed in combining clinical practice with translational research. Life as a Clinician Scientist, organised by the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences, will once again bring together individuals from different universities and hospitals to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on Saturday 19 October, 2019 for a day of inspiration, learning and upskilling.

This day showcases the best that a career of a clinician-scientist has to offer, and will have something for everyone - for those who have attended any past LACS events, and those who are coming for the first time! If you are yet to fully delve into the world of research, or wondering how to take your research to the next level, and transform your results or thesis into a publication, poster or platform, this symposium is the place to find out!

Spaces are limited so reserve your ticket now to avoid disappointment!! This includes a limited number of subsidised tickets available thanks to the generous support from our sponsors so get in quick...
