Oral and poster presentations

Due to the current situation relating to COVID-19 all submissions and presentations in 2021 will be made online, to facilitate oral presentations in front of a panel of surgeons.

We encourage you to submit research that explores the way in which surgeons can create a better culture within multidisciplinary teams within the workplace and communities across Australia and New Zealand.

However, submissions of all current research will be accepted.
