The community for medical professionals

From little things big things grow.

What was supposed to be a small intimate workshop in 2018 exploding into a 470 person event, with over 40 speakers, 10 partners, a photo exhibition and hours of inspiration. Since things haven’t slowed down for the Creative Careers in Medicine Community. Knowing we were entering territory and exploring ideas that hadn’t yet been touched on elsewhere in the medical community, we’ve made it our mission to engage, advocate, enhance and inspire the careers of medical professionals in Australia and beyond.
