2024 Younger Fellows Forum 3 - 5 May 2024, prior to the RACS Annual Scientific Congress Hamner Springs Heritage Hotel, Christchurch, Aotearoa New Zealand
Expressions of interest are now open for the 2024 Younger Fellows Forum.
The 2024 Younger Fellows Forum will take place 3 - 5 May 2024 at Hanmer Springs, Canterbury, Aotearoa. The theme is the Future of Surgery.
This event selects twenty emerging leaders who are RACS Fellows within their first ten years of Fellowship, from all walks of surgery. The aim of the weekend is to develop leadership and performance skills needed as new consultants to thrive within surgical work and also leaders within their community. We are focusing this event on high performance development, managing the team and improving personal performance. We have partnered with robotics companies and will have a session discussing the role of future technology with surgery.
We also use this event to develop the future directions for RACS. Topics are identified and refined by Younger Fellow delegates over the weekend. Given the current challenges RACS faces, it is crucial to have strong guidance from Younger Fellows on what we want RACS to be in the future. The event brings together surgeons who are motivated in surgical leadership roles and hopefully in RACS as future contributors to the organisation. The venue is in the mountainous resort town of Hanmer Springs and offers many activities to meet new surgeons and get outside.
We have been supported from sponsorship funding from personal pledges from RACS Councillors and the generous sponsorship of Medtronic, Device Technologies, Fraise Capital, Ramsay Healthcare and MIGA. We have immense gratitude for this sponsorship and we are delighted to run this event to foster emerging leaders in RACS.
Successful delegates will receive transfers from Christchurch; two nights of accommodation at Hamner Springs Heritage Hotel and meals covered as part of their attendance.
Registration is now closed.
