Cardiology? Gastro? Rheum? Paeds? Palliative care? Infectious disease? Endo? The world’s your oyster. Whichever tickles your fancy, we’re here for you!

The Junior Physicians Society is delighted to welcome you to our inaugural year, fostering connections and creating a vibrant medical community in Canberra. JPS is a collaborative platform for medical students to engage with specialists of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians. We are here to build lasting connections and enjoy a range of fun events.

In our very first year, we’re here to bridge the gap between students and physicians,
offering opportunities for mentorship, teaching, and professional growth. Come along to an ECG Masterclass, Antibiotics Crash Course, Careers Evening, Speed-Dating with Specialists, walk around Lake Burley Griffin, or just join for some pizza and a yarn with fellow med students.

Whether you’re a seasoned medical professional or a curious student, we invite you to be part of our community. Let us know if there are any topics you’re itching to learn or teach and make sure to join our Facebook page for live updates of our events!

We’re excited to meet you!
