On behalf of the local organising committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to join us in Melbourne for the Australasian IMSANZ Conference from 5th – 7th September 2019.This is being held right in the heart of this beautiful city at the Sofitel Hotel on Collins Street.
The first of two themes for the meeting is “State of the Art Updates in Internal Medicine”, and will include sessions on a broad range of medical subspecialties. Speakers who are recognised leaders in their fields will take you through the latest in their areas of expertise with a focus on what is interesting and important for the generalist to know about.
The second theme of the meeting is “The Social Determinants of Health” and will involve discussions focussing on the economic and social factors that affect the health of our populations, particularly those who are disadvantaged.
We’ve planned an exciting social programme that will introduce you to some of Melbourne’s hidden gems. For the opening drinks, we’ll travel by foot from the Sofitel through some of the city’s iconic laneways, well known for their impressive graffiti. We’ll then formally welcome you with drinks and canapes at a bar slightly more hip than you’d expect to find a group of physicians in but which is still ideal for meeting your fellow delegates and hopefully reacquainting with some old friends. Then for the conference dinner, we have been lucky enough to gain access to a striking Art Deco-era ballroom that has only recently been rediscovered.
Following on the success of recent IMSANZ meetings, we know that you will enjoy this edition, both for the range of interesting topics that will be presented, and also for the chance to take in the sites of springtime in Melbourne.
We look forward to welcoming you when you join us in September.
