Australian New Zealand Intensive Care Society (ANZICS)
Intensive Care Global Rising Star Programme


The Intensive Care Global Rising Star Programme aims to identify promising and innovative young clinician/scientists. The recipients will have the opportunity to present an overview of their past and on-going research activities during a dedicated symposium at the 2019 World Congress held in Melbourne, Victoria, 14 - 18 October 2019.  During the symposium each recipient will present a lecture (25 minute lecture + 5 minute discussion).
Travel expenses (to the value of $AU3,000), accommodation and registration costs for the recipients will be covered.

The objective of the programme is to encourage innovative and productive early to mid-career clinician/scientists disseminate their findings to an international audience. One fellowship will be awarded to a clinician/scientist from each of the following regions: America (Canada, USA and South America), Europe (including United Kingdom and Ireland) and Asia.
Applicants should hold a medical degree and have completed, or be in-training, for a fellowship in intensive care medicine. Applicants must be aged 42 years or younger on 14 October 2019. Preference will be given to clinician/scientists who have pursued a well-defined and innovative research path, leading to several publications in high-impact peer-reviewed journals. Preference will also be given to those applicants who have publications in which they are listed as first or last author. While applicants may include work with Australian and New Zealand collaborators, preference will be given to work completed in the region of each applicant.
Applications will be assessed by a panel of clinician/scientists that includes members from ANZICS as well as leader from each of the regions. Applicants will be notified via email by 1st May 2019.
The applicant must present their lecture in English. It is also anticipated that recipients will contribute to the academic and social programme of the Intensive Care World Congress.
All applications must be prepared on the official application form.
