Sydney Medical School's Research and Careers Fair is an opportunity for students considering undertaking Honours, Masters or PhDs, or a project which can be done as part of a medical degree, to discuss options with some of the faculty's leading medical and health researchers. Students will be able to talk about specific projects or interests with a wide cross section of researchers and current students, working in areas including cancer, neuroscience, immunology, child and maternal health, cardiac disease, obesity, nutrition and exercise, clinical trials, ageing, smoking, public health, sleep medicine, ophthalmology, genetics, medical imaging - and more! Scientists, clinicians and researchers will be happy to talk about and advise on projects suitable for Honours, Masters or PhDs, or which can be done as part of a medical degree.

Sydney Medical School is one of the largest research organisations in Australia. This Fair brings together representatives from all its major research Institutes, Centres and Schools, those based on campus as well as those linked to the School's teaching hospitals at Westmead, Nepean, Concord, RPA and North Shore.

Careers in medicine and health

Attending the Research and Careers Fair will be a range of public and private sector employers of medical and health graduates, including NSW Health and the Local Health Districts. A number of the key Royal Colleges (Physicians, General Practitioners, Psychiatrists, Ophthalmologists, Intensive Care Medicine) and alumni from a range of disciplines (including cardiology and emergency medicine), will be present to meet students and discuss career options.
