Life as a Clinician Scientist events aim to encourage and inspire medical and other clinical students, junior doctors and clinical trainees, and early career researchers to become involved in research, and workshop the skills necessary to succeed in combining clinical practice with medical science.
Not only do clinician scientists bring invaluable skills that allow them to solve clinical questions and provide deep scientific insights into human biology, their work has a major impact on improving clinical care. We showcase the many pathways that can lead to this exciting and rewarding career, which leads to a lifetime of challenge, discovery and fulfilment.
At these events, our Fellows and other researchers share their stories about how the unique combination of clinical practice and science allow them to work with patients and take their insights from the bedside to answer fundamental scientific questions, then translate them back to improving patient care.

We're planning events in four states in 2019: Queensland and New South Wales were held in March, and events in Victoria and Western Australia will follow later in the year.
We are looking to grow this program in the future, including an event in South Australia - please contact us if you're based elsewhere and interested in a LACS event, or if you'd like to volunteer to help with an event.Contact Us
