Gerry Murphy Prize Presentations

September 10 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Each year, the Australasian Faculty of Public Health Medicine (AFPHM) seeks abstract submissions from the AFPHM trainees to present their research in the Regional Gerry Murphy Prize. The recipient of each Regional Competition is then invited to present in the National Gerry Murphy Competition during the RACP Congress.


This is an opportunity for both Fellows and trainees to hear about the work that our future leaders in public health medicine are involved in.
