The New Fellows Conference aims to provide each participant with skills to assist them in dealing with their professional lives and relationships during their work in anaesthesia and pain medicine. Special emphasis is placed on professional excellence, leadership and involvement in College and Faculty affairs.
Fellows from all training regions may apply to attend the New Fellows Conference, which is held each year. To be eligible, Fellows must be within five years from fellowship at the time of submitting their application. Fellows must attend the relevant annual scientific meeting at which the conference is held.
The New Fellows Conference is usually advertised in the September issue of the ANZCA Bulletin at least 10 months prior to the meeting. New Fellows are encouraged to apply to represent their region or country at the conference. An electronic invitation is also sent to all eligible new Fellows and information is sent to the chair of each regional and national committee requesting they promote the conference, and to heads of department, highlighting the value of the conference to their promising young anaesthetists and pain medicine specialists.
ANZCA’s regional and national committees and the Faculty of Pain Medicine select the attendees.
The College and Faculty cover the costs of the seminar, however the applicant is responsible for the cost of traveling to and from the annual scientific meeting and meeting registration and associated fees.
