Scholarship opportunity for the BMJ-IHI International Forum – September 2018

Anticipated to attract more than 1200 healthcare quality and safety specialists from across the world, this is the first time the IHI-BMJ Asia-Pacific forum will be held in Australia. Hosting it in Melbourne offers a unique opportunity for Victorian medical, nursing, allied health, health science students, and early graduates, to attend. 

The forum promises to be unmissable for anyone with a passion for improving quality and safety in healthcare, bringing together professionals from around the world to share the latest developments in best practice and build international networks.

This year, the International Forum is expanding to encompass the work of emerging quality leaders. From students to postgraduate year two, we encourage you to submit an abstract for presentation at the BMJ International Forum.

Submitting an abstract to the Students & Juniors Program gives you the opportunity to present your work on the 3 minute thesis stage, display a poster and have your abstract included in the conference proceedings.
