Clinical updates and environmental challeges in medicine





  • NOTE: non medical partners are welcome to attend but the registration costs remain the same as the same fixed costs are incurred in staging the event

  • No GST applied as the entire activity is conducted offshore.


No application will be confirmed as registered until a 25% deposit has been received


Please be aware that as there are many logistical preparations and costs that we incur at an early stage as well as deposits that we are required to place, the deposit is non refundable if you choose to make a subsequent cancellation. Good travel insurance should cover you for such an eventuality and it is worth checking with your provider. Of course if for any reason we were forced to cancel the meeting all monies paid to us would be refunded in full. Please see the registration form for details of our cancellation policy.
