What makes a ‘Good Doctor’?
The NSW Junior Doctors’ Conference, held in June, challenged doctors-in-training to examine what it takes to succeed in medicine.
DOCTORS-IN-TRAINING gathered June long weekend for the NSW Junior Doctors’ Conference, hosted by the AMA (NSW) / ASMOF (NSW) Alliance.
The three-day conference combined presentations from leaders in medicine, with panel discussions, Q&As, workshops, an innovation forum, research presentations and a medical challenge. The conference also featured social events, held throughout the weekend, to give junior doctors a chance to network and relax.
The NSW JDC 2018 was an opportunity for DITs to be inspired by leaders in medicine and debate the issues that impact on their working lives. It was also a chance to learn new techniques, develop new ideas and take home some valuable lessons to help further their careers in medicine.
Congratulations to the winner of the Innovation Forum – Dr Marjy Grealish, as well as to Dr Gabriela Kelly for winning the Research Competition, Dr Lucy Haggstrom for winning the Poster Competition, Dr Vanessa Hang Lam Wan for Best Oral Presentation, and Liverpool Hospital team for winning the Medical Challenge. Special mention goes to Dr Dr Praneel Kumar who was the People’s Choice winner of the Poster Competition. We would also like to thank the sponsors of the event.
