Why come to the Student Conference?

The ASMIRT 2019 Student Conference will be held on Friday 29 March 2019.

It is designed to give student delegates the opportunity to present their own work to their student peers in a comfortable, safe environment, an experience that will no doubt set them up to contribute to future ASMIRT Conferences. Students can submit an abstract for presentation or an ePoster exhibit.

Attendees will benefit from the research presented and networking opportunities with peers, speakers, ASMIRT staff and Board members and potential employers. The program will include invited speakers, social event and an early careers forum. Be sure to follow the #ASMIRTstudent2019 hashtag on social media.

Registrations are now closed, for any enquires please email conferences@inhouseeventsolutions



I really enjoyed the student conference in Canberra. I was able to learn about the new and upcoming advances in the radiation therapy profession, but in a student friendly way. My favourite part was the panel at the end of the day, where we were able to ask questions and get tips from medical radiation professionals about job applications and interviews.

Guest Speaker: Daniel JohnstoneDaniel Johnstone
Daniel was 24 and fresh out of Uni in 2013 when he first began experiencing the symptoms that would lead to a cancer diagnosis in 2016.  His experiences led him to work for Camp Quality and pursue interests in psychology as he plans to undertake a PhD exploring how doctor-patient relationships impact patient self-efficacy in cancer.Daniel's presentation will provide a very honest insight into the thoughts and processes of a cancer patient, and give you an appreciation for how the small ways you communicate will make the biggest impact. 



If you want to improve your public speaking skills, attending the conference can also provide an insight to different presentations styles and what you thought worked well/not well to implement into your own style. Overall, it was an educational experience which gets you involved in your profession and brings variety in your learning.
