Choose the Right Sessions

There will be an abundance of sessions to choose form – many more than you’ll be able to attend. So when plotting your schedule take a look at the symposium as a whole. Look at all the sessions and events you’re interested in, then make sure you’re getting to attend a range of topics, and social events, but still allow for some down time. If you find yourself in a session that isn’t what you thought, don’t feel bad about skipping out and going to a different one. It is all about using your time wisely and getting the most out of what’s on offer.

The updated Symposium Program is now available. Please keep checking back as this is developed further and presenter time slots are confirmed.

R.A. Rodda Museum of Pathology

One of the tour groups (CBD tour) will be visiting the R.A. Rodda Museum of Pathology. This week we want to share with you an interesting story of collaboration between the curator, Dr Sorrel Standish-White of the Museum and an artist Lauren Black. ‘Memento Mori exhibition: Hobart artist and pathologist discover diseases through art’ You can find the article here.

Build Stronger Relationships

Attending the Symposium is a time to meet new people but also a time to build on the relationships you already have established via your own professional networks. If you know of people who you want to reconnect with reach out a couple of weeks before the Symposium to catch up during the event.
