Familiarisation with Another Two Medical Specialisations
An Australia-wide Event for Interpreters and Translators
Tuesday 11 July 2017

Dear Firstname,

Presentations by two prominent medical specialists, with an opportunity for questions; live-streamed for those in other locations.

Whether you’re an interpreter or a translator, spoken language or Auslan, here’s an opportunity to enhance your contextual knowledge of two important fields of medicine. A well-known ophthalmologist and an ear, nose and throat specialist will each provide an overview of his field for the lay person: typical medical conditions, their causes and treatment, and current trends in research. You can also follow this event live-streamed, and questions from remote locations can be sent in by SMS.

The venue in Melbourne has a limit of 70 participants; once this limit is reached, further registrations from Melbourne-based registrants will have to be for live-streaming only. The link to the live-streaming, and the number for questions by SMS, will be provided to participants once registrations close on Sunday 09 July.

If you expect to be unavailable at the scheduled time and date (other commitments, unreliable internet connection, etc.) you should not register for this event.  As with other webinars, a recording will be available for viewing online after the event, for the same price as registration for the event itself.

For those attending in Melbourne, please note that onsite registrations will begin at 17:30 and light refreshments will be offered from 17:30 to 18:30.

Auslan interpreting will be available.
