    Event description

    Learn more about the rewarding career of a clinician-scientist at our Life as a Clinician-Scientist New South Wales Symposium.

    Created to inspire medical and health sciences students, junior doctors, health professionals, and early career researchers, this event features leading experts sharing their experiences in this ground-breaking profession.

    Clinician-scientists combine clinical practice with medical research, allowing them to take their insights from working with patients to answer fundamental scientific questions, then use those insights to improve patient care.

    Join us in Sydney to learn about the many pathways to this exciting career, which leads to a lifetime of challenge, discovery and fulfilment. In-person attendees will have the opportunity to sign-up for spot mentoring with some of our expert speakers.

    Our Fellows, alongside other senior, mid- and early-career researchers, will share their stories about working with their unique combination of clinical medicine and science, and how to master the skills necessary to succeed.
