At the Annual Scientific Meeting each year, a range of prizes are offered for scientific papers and exhibits submitted by College members.
For details, see the ASM website and the New Zealand Branch ASM website.
Varian Medical Systems generously supports first and second year radiation oncology trainees to take part in the College’s Annual Scientific Meetings (in both Australia and New Zealand) by providing a number of grants to assist with the costs of meeting registration and other expenses.
2017 applications have now closed. Information about the 2018 grants will be released in December 2017.
Participating Branches of the College hold an annual Trainee Presentation Evening, with the most outstanding presentation awarded a claimable prize of up to AU$1,200 to present at the College’s Annual Scientific Meeting in the ‘Branch of Origin’ session, as part of the Trainee Learning Day.
At the Branch of Origin session, trainees from each state battle it out for a claimable prize of up to AU$5,000 to assist with attendance at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) meeting the following year. The presentations will be judged on a number of criteria including but not limited to: clearly stated and valid purpose research; appropriate and valid method description; scientific impact; clear and concise presentation; and the overall visual style of the presentation.
The event is open to all clinical radiology trainees in Years 1-5; however, trainees in Year 1-3 are encouraged to consider this an essential part of their learning process for Project 1.
Contact your local Branch for information on your Trainee Presentation Evening.
