This SMSANZ Networking Series: Coffee Conversation event aims to continue giving our SMSANZ members a platform to network and learn about the Singapore healthcare system. Our members are medical students studying in Australia or New Zealand, most of which are currently stuck here in Singapore, as borders back overseas have not been open. This event mainly serves as an opportunity for these students to learn from various clinicians of different specialities, especially since there is a lack of student clinical attachments and face to face networking opportunities this year.
In order to gain a better understanding of the different specialisations that students are interested in, both students and invited specialists are invited to have an informal and sponsored meal of up to $20.
Hello Participants! Here’s everything you need to know about the Coffee Conversations and how to register!
