Student Conference

Now an online event

With the Conference only two short months away, and the ongoing uncertainties of current and potential snap lockdowns due to the pandemic, many conference attendees and speakers cannot commit to travel to Melbourne for our event in June.
After many attempts and multiple postponements, unfortunately, the COVID gods continue to work against us. The Organising Committee, ASMIRT and NZIMRT have made the decision to make the ASMIRT-NZIMRT 2021 Conference a Virtual Only event.
Making this decision now provides consistency for organisers, exhibitors and attendees, and has re-ignited our team to develop a conference that fulfils the original aims that we had set around three years ago; to deliver a conference that was innovative, modern and would set a different model to build upon into the future. We will now certainly meet those aims.

The ASMIRT Conference will integrate the Student Conference in 2021 for the first time. The conference will be held 4 – 7 June 2021 in Melbourne with the student conference room running presentations on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 June.

This new format is designed to give student delegates the opportunity to present to the wider audience and have a chance to answer questions from all delegates, a valuable learning experience indeed. Students can submit an abstract for oral presentation or a poster exhibit. Students are welcome to submit their oral presentation in the traditional presentation style or make use of the Pecha Kucha presentation style, as described in the Abstracts section of this website.

Abstracts .

Abstract submissions are now closed.

Help our student presenters expand their presentation experience within the medical radiation sciences by visiting them at the ASMIRT-NZIMRT 2021 Conference. They will be sharing case studies and scenarios they have encountered; raising issues they think need debating and bouncing ideas around on topics of interest that matter to all MRS students and registrants.

His most recent work focuses on reducing MRI and CT simulation patient anxiety and claustrophobia through a guided fully immersive VR environment.

Joe Virgona – Director, Your Money Manager

Joe will present to students on the key life skill of managing your money. He is a financial planner with 19 years’ experience and a director at the financial planning firm Your Money Manager for the last 14 years. Joe works with and helps individuals and families to:

  • simplify and improve how they manage their money so they can start to save, get on top of debts and move from living pay day to pay day to focusing on how they want to live long term.
  • own their own properties, whether it’s their first home or an investment property and then combine this with using their superannuation and other investments to set themselves up.
  • create effective longer term strategies and plans so once they get to retirement they will have more choice about what they do and where they go.

He observes that the people who know how to look after their money are the ones who invest in themselves and their futures, and who can then go on and help their families and the wider community and wants to help as many people as possible to get into this position.

Key topics: managing your super, salary packaging and strategic investment

Key message: don’t live off your pay day to pay day and know how to manage your money
