Academic Day Themes
Each day at MDSC has its own vibrant theme.
“The future is here – it’s just unevenly distributed.” – William Gibson
Globalisation, the climate, politics, technology and culture - what do they have in common and why do they matter to us as future doctors? The health of our future patients is being determined largely by forces beyond their control. In turn, our careers are being shaped by these powers that exist beyond the walls of our hospitals and clinics - how will we adapt?
Forces at Play will be an exposé of the major determinants of health and will challenge us to consider how they are impacting our future roles as doctors - both in the everyday practice of medicine and in wider advocacy capacities. We will leave with a better understanding of how societal issues are shaping our careers and in turn how we can help determine change in society as future doctors.
