Application Form Intensive Care Global Rising Star Programme 2018 (word)

Each year, three Fellowships for flights (to the value of AU$3, 000 each), accommodation and registration to the ANZICS/ACCCN Annual Scientific Meeting are available for early to mid-career clinician/scientists to present their work at an international audience.

We wish to encourage and support innovative and productive early to mid-career clinician/scientists to disseminate their findings to an international audience by the awarding of a number of fellowships.  One fellowship will be awarded to a clinician/scientist from each of the following regions: America (Canada, USA and South America), Europe (including United Kingdom and Ireland) and Asia.

The recipients will have the opportunity to present an overview of their past and on-going​ research activities during a dedicated symposium which will be held at the 43rd ANZICS/ACCCN Annual Scientific Meeting in Adelaide, South Australia 11-13 October 2018. The Annual Scientific Meeting is the largest meeting related to ICU held in Australia/New Zealand with over 1000 attendees. During the symposium each recipient will present a lecture (25 minute lecture + 5 minute discussion).

Travel expenses (to the value of AU$3,000), accommodation and registration costs for the recipients will be covered.

Applicants should hold a medical degree and have completed or be in-training for a fellowship in intensive care medicine. Applicants must be aged 42 years or younger on 11th October 2018. Preference will be given to clinician/scientists who have pursued a well-defined and innovative research path, leading to several publications in high-impact peer-reviewed journals. Preference will also be given to those applicants who have publications in which they are listed as first or last author. While applicants may include work with Australian and New Zealand collaborators, preference will be given to work completed in the region of each applicant.

The applicant must present their lecture in English. It is also anticipated that recipients will contribute to the academic and social programme of the ANZICS/ACCCN Annual Scientific Meeting.
