Townsville Health Symposium 2015

7 to 9 October, 2015

 

The Northern Clinical Training Network, Townsville Hospital and Health Service and James Cook University’s Division of Tropical Health and Medicine will host this year’s Townsville Health Symposium from 7 – 9 October, 2015.  The aim of this multi-disciplinary week is to raise the profile of research in our region by showcasing research projects being undertaken by individuals across the training continuum and in a range of disciplines. 

The 2015 event will be a highlight in the North Queensland research calendar and will allow researchers who are involved in leading-edge research to network with their peers, mentor new researchers and for all to learn from their shared experience.

Townsville Health Research Week will include Allied Health, Medicine and Nursing symposiums and will feature presentations from JCU’s Festival of Life Sciences
