Explore the possibilities of a fulfilling career combining your clinical practice with health research.


Our Life as a Clinician-Scientist symposia are designed to inspire junior doctors, medical, health and sciences students, and early career researchers to pursue a career as a clinician-scientist.


What is a clinician-scientist?

Clinician-scientists combine clinical practice with health research, allowing them to take their insights from working with patients to answer fundamental scientific questions and ultimately improve patient care.

The symposium offers a unique platform to meet leading experts in the field and learn about the many pathways to this exciting career.

What to expect on the day

There will be a number of talks and a panel discussion, during which our Fellows, alongside other senior, mid- and early-career researchers, will share their stories about their unique combination of clinical medicine and science. They will talk about how they got started and how to master the skills necessary to succeed, with plenty of time built in for guests to ask questions.

Over lunch, attendees will have the opportunity to sign-up for 10-minute one-on-one mentoring sessions with our expert speakers. Don’t miss your chance to meet these ground-breaking clinician-scientists, and seek their advice to inform your future.

Registration includes morning tea and lunch.


Chaired by Professor David Whiteman AM FAHMS (NHMRC Leadership Fellow (L3) and Distinguished Scientist, QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute), our speaker line-up includes:
