We are an organisation that seeks to promote General Practice, but also to encourage students to have a more holistic approach to health. Even if you’re not sure whether General Practice is for you, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to hone your skills.
Did we mention that members get discounts on medical supplies and equipment?!
We are relatively new society and we are growing and learning, so come be a part of history!
EVENTS PLANNED FOR 2020:
MARCH: Inaugural NSW/ACT State Event: “GPSN First Steps” @ University of Sydney
Speakers, Clinical Skills, Networking. Lots of free goodies, spot prizes and food galore!
MAY: To Intubate or Not to Intubate - Clinical Skills evening
Spots are limited for this event of exciting skills which will help you at any stage of your journey to medicine.
JULY: Community outreach project
One way of being a better doctor is to get stuck into the community. What better way than raising funds for a much needed cause. Details to be announced soon.
AUGUST: How to smash your OSCEs
Stay tuned for an event which will make you the King/Queen of all OSCEs with input from some of ANU’s finest examiners
IN THE NEAR FUTURE: Inaugural Teddy Bear hospital
Catering to students who have an interest in paediatric medicine, this event hopes to develop the skills required to engage with children. It also aims to educate and familiarise children with the healthcare environment and how to lead a healthy life.
Bill Maish Tutorial Series for Cardio, Renal, and Resp from September - October.
Come one, come all. Later year students will be running 'wrap-up' style sessions at the end of each unit in block 3 to help remind you of everything you have forgotten (or to perfect your knowledge). Brave students with experience or those who are confident in any of the topics are welcome to be a part of the presenting team, which will be organised around the beginning of September.
