2024 ANZCA Annual Scientific Meeting

Save the date for the  2024 ANZCA ASM which will be held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC) on 3-7 May. 

We would love to extend an invitation to join us in Brisbane for the 2024 ANZCA Annual Scientific Meeting. The conference theme is "Limitless". We want to challenge you to reach new goals, to see how much you can achieve. We want you to be  reminded that as specialists in anaesthesia, pain and perioperative medicine we have a unique set of skills and knowledge that can be used to create a better future for our patients, communities, and the globe.

The meeting program will have a diverse range of talks, workshops and experiences designed to explore out limitless opportunities, both personally and professionally, as we head into the future. There will be thought-provoking content from international, national and local experts on cutting-edge science, techniques to enhance your practice, sustainability, well-being, education and research. Our CPD program will be enhanced to cater for the new changes in activity required. We are also, delighted to offer you a packed social program that will highlight the best Brisbane has to offer and give you the opportunity to connect with friends, old and new.

The  FPM Symposium will run on Friday 3 May. The symposium, themed ‘Illuminating’ will also run at the BCEC.  
See you in Brisbane!
