#76 Event wrap: Medical Careers Expo
17 May 2019
On Saturday 11 May, over 1,000 final-year students and junior doctors gathered at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre for our 2019 Medical Careers Expo to look for assistance navigating their careers in medicine.
With over 40 exhibitors, including health services, specialist colleges and training providers, this was the perfect opportunity for medical students and DiTs wanting to progress or even redefine their careers.
The Expo featured a jam-packed speaker schedule across three rooms with the key drawcards including Dr Louisa Ng from The Royal Melbourne Hospital, Dr Paul Eleftheriou from Western Health and Mardi O’Keefe, AMA Victoria’s Medical Career Service Manager.
This year, the event included a number of interactive panel discussions that provided delegates with insights into a variety of specialty pathways and the opportunity to share experiences that might help them as they navigate their careers. The panels included a range of diverse career options including registrars, obstetrics & gynaecology, paediatrics, general practice and senior specialists, as well as creative careers in medicine.
AMA Victoria would particularly like to thank MDA National, the Expo’s major sponsor and CareSuper, for providing coffee throughout the day.
Thank you to all delegates, speakers and exhibitors for their involvement. The feedback we have received from those who attended has been overwhelmingly positive and we are already looking forward to the 2020 Medical Careers Expo!
