The RANZCR Annual Scientific Meeting is an exciting opportunity to learn about radiology, radiation oncology and connect with leading industry experts.
Following the success of the inaugural RANZCR ASM Grant program in 2021, we are excited to launch the 2022 RANZCR ASM Sponsor Grant program thanks to the support of our sponsors.
The grant is available for Indigenous junior medical doctors or medical students to attend the 72nd RANZCR ASM in Adelaide. The grant supports and encourages opportunities for junior doctors and medical students who identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander or Māori to extend their knowledge and interest in our profession.
The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR) is committed to supporting the professions of clinical radiology and radiation oncology to contribute to equitable health outcomes for Māori, Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders. Increasing the number of medical practitioners from these communities is central to our commitment.
Who can apply?
Current junior doctors and medical students who identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander or Māori in Australia and New Zealand.

The grant includes AU$3,500 each for five successful applicants to contribute to their costs to attend the 72nd RANZCR ASM in Adelaide from 27–30 October 2022. The grant covers full registration, travel and accommodation expenses.
