Fellows from all different stages in their career have come together to impart comprehensive insight into the many exciting and sometimes challenging aspects of practice faced by Fellows today. The RANZCO Younger Fellows Group discuss career pathways and opportunities with a focus on broadening experience both locally and overseas.
The Group also helps younger Fellows to stay informed about activities and initiatives that might be of interest. With a survey carried out approximately every 18 months, the group uses this as valuable feedback to highlight the needs of Fellows in their first ten years of practice. Fellows from right across Australia and New Zealand make up the group.
If you are a RANZCO Younger Fellow, you can find more information within the Fellowship Lifecycle Resources by logging in to your dashboard.
There are numerous opportunities to meet in person throughout the year at local branch meetings and at the Annual Scientific Congress. The Younger Fellows Advisory Group aims to provide a wide range of activities from open forum sessions about a number of topics and opportunities to network and socialise, in the spirit of collaboration and collegiality. At recent RANZCO Annual Congresses, the Younger Fellows have held a session in the main program with topics including: starting a practice, ethical practice/interacting with industry, pursuing an academic career/research, dealing with complaints and setting up a practice/day clinic.
