2015 Conference Wrap-Up

They say “good things come in small packages”. Perhaps that’s true, because from the 19th until the 21st of November this year, the Sydney Nanoscience Hub was buzzing. Around 300 students and recently graduated health professionals packed into the new state-of the-art facility to share what they knew about leadership, and be inspired by others.

about us


Future Health Leaders was established in 2011 to ensure ongoing engagement of students and early-career health professionals in the health reform process.  Future Health Leaders is the first multi-professional organisation in Australia for both student and early career health professionals to work together in shaping tomorrow, today!

We believe that every student and early career health professional can make a significant contribution to improve the health of all Australians regardless of their location, background or discipline.  We aim inspire and empower new ideas on current health issues in Australia and overseas, and ensure that tomorrow's health leaders are engaged in solving the problems that they will likely inherit.

Future Health Leaders is run by a council of some of Australia’s most inspiring young minds.  After having been run by an interim council for the first two years a full council was elected in 2013 to represent the views of training and early career health professionals nationwide. With council members fulfilling a two year term, the Council aims to develop possible solutions to a range of issues and develop discussion papers for wider comment and dissemination. In addition to this, the Council works with policy makers and other organisations to discuss a range of programs and initiatives.  Future Health Leaders became an Incorporated Association in June 2014 prior to the abolishment of Health Workforce Australia.

We have established a membership opportunity through this website so that all junior health professionals and students can be engaged with the activities and outcomes of the Council, as well as provide feedback to the Council from a broader population.

Take a look around the website and see how you can become a Future Health Leader and help shape the future of Australia’s health workforce!
