ANZCP CONFERENCE 2017
ANZCP is pleased to bring you the most comprehensive, in-depth paramedic conference on the Australian calendar in 2017. With great events and excellent programs of national and international speakers, we will once again explore innovations and advances in pre-hospital medicine.
PRESENTER BIO AND PRESENTATION SYNOPSIS
Our major two day event for 2017 is ANZCP Conference 2017 in Brisbane on Thursday 24th and Friday 25th August and we are excited to give the opportunity for paramedicine students to be involved in and with the running of the conference.
If you want to enhance your conference experience, and have the opportunity to work closely with the ANZCP General Manager, College staff and organising committee, then this is a great experience to be involved with. We are looking to recruit 10 students to be part of a volunteer team.
You must be a current, financial ANZCP student member to be eligible to be a volunteer.
As a student volunteer you will also get the benefit of FREE student registration to attend ANZCP Conference 2017 and volunteer polo shirts to wear for the event. Note: your travel to and from Brisbane, accommodation and any other costs are your own responsibility.
As a student volunteer, you will be responsible for:
- Onsite registration of delegates at the start of the day
- Directing delegates within the venue and ensuring everyone is seated on time
- Helping set up at the start of the day and packing away at the end
- Assisting with microphones during Q and A sessions
- Helping with AV and videoing the day
- Photography (need own DSLR camera and experience taking quality photos)
- Motivating and engaging with delegates
- Managing social media posts, tweets and engaging with social media followers
- Managing the Paramedic Shop during breaks
You will be expected to attend the entire conference and you will hear the majority of all the great presentations, but it will be a couple busy days with involvement across a number of key areas to help make the day a success.
ANZCP Conference 2017 is at Brisbane Convention Centre on Thursday 24th and Friday 25th August.
EOI process has closed.
ANZCP held our first University Challenge at ANZCP Conference 2016, with Western Sydney University taking out the inaugural crown of University Challenge Champions.
The University Challenge will be held again as part of ANZCP Conference 2017.
The ANZCP University Challenge involves the following activities:
- Trauma Sim Challenge
- Medical Sim Challenge
- Critical Reasoning Discussion
- Oral Presentation on relevant profession topic
The University Challenge is scheduled for Wednesday 23rd of August at QUT, Kelvin Grove campus, Brisbane.
Winner’s trophies are to be awarded for:
- Best sim challenge performance
- Outstanding clinical reasoning
- Best oral presentation
The overall best performing student team will be awarded ANZCP University Challenge Champions.
The ANZCP University Challenge provides a holistic learning environment, where students can test their skills and knowledge, plus obtain relevant and supportive feedback from judges who are experts in their field.
ANZCP realises that students will need to travel to Brisbane for the competition and the conference. Subsequently, ANZCP will be offering each university team two free tickets to the conference. We are in discussion with a number of potential sponsors about providing further travel allowance to assist students travelling interstate.
Teams are submitted by universities and the selected students represent their university. All universities will be emailed details about the ANZCP University Challenge in May.
