• Friday 29th June: International Convention Centre (14 Darling Dr, Sydney – same venue as ANZSGM ASM)
• Saturday 30th June: Claffy Lecture Theatre, Sydney Hospital (8 Macquarie Street, Sydney)
To round off the ASM, all geriatric medicine advanced trainees are warmly invited to attend the annual Advanced Trainee Weekend.
The speakers include some of Sydney’s most accomplished and well-regarded geriatricians and psychogeriatricians. The sessions are designed to be interactive rather than didactic. Most sessions will incorporate case presentations and discussion, dedicated Q&A time and will focus on advice you can apply to clinical practice, rather than broad concepts you will have heard many times before. We hope that you can join us.
