ASSA Winter Case Competition 2022

*** deadline extended – submissions due 21/08/2022 ***

Have you seen an interesting surgical case that you would love to share with the world? Are you a budding writer looking for a friendly community to support your work? 

The Australasian Students’ Surgical Association (ASSA) Academics Team is hosting a written case competition over winter, showcasing the work of medical students around Australasia. 

You are invited to submit a case report under the following themes:

1. A ‘classic’ case study with educational value

2. A novel or unique case, phenomenon, association or adverse reaction  

3. An interesting diagnostic, ethical or management challenge

Submissions will be assessed by a panel of junior doctors. Top submissions will be presented with free ASSA membership, and invited to present their cases at the 2023 Australasian Students’ Surgical Conference. Select submissions may also be showcased on the ASSA website.
