The Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society (ANZICS) presents the Intensive Care Global Rising Star Programme, now in its sixth year.
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 2019 Intensive Care World Congress, held in Melbourne, Australia, from 14-18 October 2019.
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. In previous years, a fellowship was 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. In 2019, we have changed this process to allow for selection to be based on academic merit and consistent with our commitment to inclusion and diversity.
In 2019, we are anticipating in excess of 2500 delegates at our congress, which will incorporate our Annual Scientific Meeting. During the symposium each recipient will present a lecture (25 minute lecture + 5 minute discussion).
Travel expenses (to the value of $AU3,000), 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 14 October 2019. 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.
Applications will be assessed by a panel of Clinician/Scientists that includes members from ANZICS and international experts. Applications will close midnight 31st March 2019 (Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time) with the successful applicant notified via email by 1st May 2019.
Applications should include an abstract and a CV of no more than 10 pages.
Applications should be emailed to Brent Kingston, Executive Assistant, ANZICS (email@example.com).
The applicant must present their lecture in English. It is also anticipated that recipients will contribute to the academic and social programme of the World Congress.
We at ANZICS are very excited about this programme, but obviously its success depends on attracting high quality candidates to apply for this Fellowship.
Last year we were delighted to have Dr Lauren Ferrante (Yale School of Medicine, USA), Dr Jan Hau Lee (KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital, Singapore) and Dr Andrew Conway Morris (University of Cambridge).
