ASID Trainee Weekend 2017

24th to 26th November 2017, Melbourne, Australia.

Delegates of the ASID (Australasian Society for Infectious Diseases) Trainee Weekend will spend 2-3 days undertaking didactic teaching in areas relevant to paediatric ID, adult ID and microbiology. Understanding that not all rotations are made equal and that the breadth of infectious diseases is broad, the idea is to have a weekend of teaching prepared by trainees for trainees to fill any knowledge gaps. Current trainees will be colleagues for the remainder of their career interaction, so there will be plenty of opportunity for socialising and networking to build professional friendships.


  • Antibiotic PK/PD
  • Management of resistant Gram negatives
  • Updates in infections in ICU and surgical site infections

Social Program

There will be a Careers Development session on Friday 7-9 pm, with food and drink included. Networking will continue on Saturday with a great social session, taking place straight after lectures at the College Lawn Pub, just a short 5 minute walk from the Alfred. These sessions are in addition to a full program on Saturday and Sunday with lectures finishing around 4pm.
