Queensland Clinical Science Symposium. Tickets & More Info @ Finalised Program – to come. Following the success of the sold-out inaugural Victorian Clinical Science Symposium in 2016 and its follow-up in 2017, we are excited to announce the first-ever Queensland Clinical Science Symposium (QCSS). This symposium will be a one-day event, held at the Translational Research Institute on March 10, 2018. Spaces are limited, so register now for an inspiring day of medicine & science, with lunch, tea, and happy hour included. QCSS: Foundations & Frontiers is a student organised event, supported by the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences, which promises to be a day of discussion, learning and upskilling.

It will bring together students, researchers, clinicians and doctors from various Queensland universities and hospitals to focus on the intersection between clinical medicine and science. The presentations, panel discussions and networking opportunities will encourage and inspire medical students, researchers and clinicians to get involved in research, and workshop the skills necessary to succeed in combining clinical practice with research. We have carefully crafted a program that has something for everyone - whether you are considering commencing research, or have completed a project and want to translate the results into a publication, poster or platform, this symposium will grant you the tools and information to succeed as a clinician-scientist.
