The Australian Medical Students’ Association (AMSA) are holding their week-long National Convention in Hobart this week. Around 800 medical students are contributing to the largest student-run conference in the Southern Hemisphere.

Speakers at the Convention include Dr Bob Brown, Dr Sally Cockburn, Professor Alan-Mackay Sim, Mr Rodney Croome, and Ms Gabi Hollows.

“Above all, it is an invaluable opportunity for learning, upskilling and interstate networking on a massive level,” AMSA President, Ms Jessica Yang said.

Already from the Convention AMSA have released new policy supporting intersex rights and a call for a focus on intimate partner violence in medical education.

AMSA is the peak representative body for Australia’s 17,000 medical students. Read more about the Convention here.
