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 airfares, 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.


As it is unlikely that overseas visitors will be able to come to Australia in 2021, SPANZA will not be offering the opportunity for sponsored overseas delegates this year.  We hope by 2022 that things will change and we will be able to offer travel and registration to an overseas delegate once again.
