VOLUNTEER PROGRAM FOR MEDICAL STUDENTS
The 2017 Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) is being held in Auckland, New Zealand on 29 October - 1 November 2017. Registration of interest from medical students wishing to participate as volunteers has now closed. Successful applicants will be contacted by the ASM Secretariat.
ABOUT THE MEETING
The Organising Committee is planning a top-notch meeting with plenary sessions, three concurrent streams, a debate, interactive workshops and daily breakfast sessions. The aim is to put science back on the program: a View from the Top will examine using cutting-edge research to help conquer clinical challenges.
Participation in the Volunteer Program provides some exposure to meeting sessions and the speciality of obstetrics and gynaecology more generally. Volunteer medical students will undertake certain tasks throughout the duration of the meeting, such as providing directional assistance, running messages and collecting tickets for ticketed sessions.
Volunteers will be required for a minimum half-day commitment; on the day(s) of attendance, students will assist with meeting tasks for half of the day and, if desired, will be provided with a complimentary meeting pass to attend the remainder of the scientific sessions for that day.
Volunteers will be required to wear a volunteer t-shirt while in a volunteer capacity onsite and a briefing session will be held to provide an outline of the roles and responsibilities of volunteers.
