Application for Sponsored overseas delegate

Since 2004, SPANZA has sponsored an anaesthetist with a strong interest in paediatric anaesthesia from a lesser developed country to attend the annual scientific SPANZA meeting. The sponsorship provides for economy airfares (from the main city location), accommodation and registration.  It is also expected that the successful applicant will be able to stay on in Australia for 1-2 weeks to undertake a placement at one of the local hospitals.

To date, SPANZA has sponsored anaesthetists from Uganda, Mongolia, Thailand, Bhutan, Fiji, the Solomon Islands, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Nepal and India.
