The Details

From 01-04 October 2018, the combined General Surgeons Australia and Pacific Islands Surgeons Association 2018 Scientific Meeting will be held on Denarau Island, Fiji. 

The Organising Committee is pleased to announce an exciting opportunity for collaboration between Australian and New Zealand Surgeons, and Surgeons based in the Pacific Nations, in the form of locum cover for Pacific Island based Surgeons who will be attending the Meeting.

What's Involved?

Pacific Island Nation locum cover is for a period of two (2) weeks: week one being the week prior to the combined Meeting, week two being the week of the combined Meeting.

  1. Week One - *Monday 24 - Sunday 30 September, 2018 
    The first week will be spent working in collaboration with the local surgeon, allowing the visiting locum surgeon to familiarise themselves with the local working environment 

  2. Week Two - *Monday 01 - Friday 05 October, 2018 
    This week will see the visiting locum surgeon working independently, allowing the local surgeon time off to attend the conference

Benefits

For surgeons working in the Pacific Islands, the combined Scientific Meeting will be an important conference, but being able to attend is whole other matter.

Attendance can be made difficult for various reasons, but the main difficulty is maintenance of their clinical service, particularly if that surgeon is one of two-or-three surgeons in their hospital Many Pacific-based surgeons have to wait a four-year period for their opportunity
to attend. 

The combining of the PISA biennial conference and the GSA ASM opens up an opportunity for General Surgeons from Australia to help out their Pacific-based colleagues, building lasting and meaningful relationships.
