Graduate Research Symposium

Central Clinical School's (CCS) annual postgraduate symposium aims to improve the visibility of students and their research projects on a larger scale and celebrate their achievements. PhD students throughout the ARA precinct (Baker & Burnet Institutes and CCS) have the opportunity to explain their research to peers and colleagues. By participating, they can foster collaborations, networking and a greater awareness of the ARA based expertise and research. Students can make either oral presentations, which are judged by a panel of senior academics and postdocs. Attractive monetary prizes are awarded for outstanding work.
