Join us at our first Life as Clinician-Scientist event of the year: our New South Wales symposium, to be held on 15 April at the Kerry Packer Education Centre, near the University of Sydney Camperdown campus. In-person attendees will have the opportunity to sign-up for spot mentoring with some of our expert speakers. 

Clinician-scientists work at the cutting edge of health, combining clinical skills with trailblazing research. They lead the discovery and development of new treatments, reveal insights into health and disease, and their work significantly impacts patient care.

Discover the stories behind some of the state’s top clinician-scientists and gain insight on how to succeed on this unique career path.

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.
