CICC Research Symposium 2019

Matthaei Room University House Professors' Walk The University of Melbourne


The Centre for Integrated Critical Care (CICC) at The University of Melbourne brings together the three key disciplines that manage high risk and critically ill adults and children: anaesthesia; emergency medicine; and intensive care.

We invite critical care researchers (including early career researchers, clinician researchers, research coordinators, Research Higher Degree students) from University of Melbourne affiliated hospitals to join together to share current and future research activity, and to develop new networks.

There is no cost for tickets but we require registration to allow for catering.
