                                                            What previous delegates say

                                                            I’d felt wholly underprepared and largely unaware of the process to come. At the PRINT conference 2016, I became more comfortable when going through the common medical scenarios interns would be expected to face.
                                                            CHRISTINA2016 Delegate (University of Queensland)
                                                            PRINT conference has largely focused on the academic aspects of being a proficient junior doctor.
                                                            SANYA2016 Delegate (Bond University)
                                                            As a final year medical student, I attended the 2016 PRINT Conference, and found it to provide both practical information and tips I could use in day to day life, as well as inspiration as to what medicine has to offer both within and outside the walls of the hospital.
