Advanced Trainee Weekend


The organising committee is excited to confirm the topics for the Advanced Trainee weekend. Our conference keynote speakers Prof Cathie Sherrington and Prof Andy Clegg's sessions will include an interactive session on exercise setting and the use of AI in older adults. We have a range of other topics by local specialists including palliative care, diabetes, advanced trainee project writing, ophthalmology and getting the balance right with investigations. This is a fantastic opportunity for Advanced Trainees to connect with peers from across Australia and New Zealand.
