The Australasian Society for HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexual Health Medicine (ASHM) – as a peak organisation of health professionals in Australia and New Zealand who work in HIV, viral hepatitis and sexually transmissible infections (STIs), established in 2015 the ASHM Scholarship Program that provides a variety of scholarships to assist ASHM members, affiliates and others in the HIV, viral hepatitis and sexual health sector to attend national and international conferences to support their continuing professional development.
The ASHM Scholarships Program is managed by our Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) award-winning ASHM Conference and Events Division who manages all the logistics for ASHM’s internal conferences and education courses as well as providing guidance in a range of other ASHM activities.
Scholarships are awarded on the basis of objective criteria overseen by an independent Scholarship Committee. Each round of scholarships can be designated for specific professional groups or opened to a broader audience, with details are provided with each round.
Members of the scholarship committee are drawn from a pool of 'late' career individuals from different states, organisations and disciplines. Secretariat provided by ASHM Conference Division. The Scholarship Committee will be asked to commit for a period of 2-3 years and during that time will not be eligible to apply for scholarships from this program.
Since 2015, scholarships have been awarded to HIV S100 prescribers (GP/primary care), sexual health physicians, hospital-based specialists managing HIV, HIV nurses and community pharmacists – who all are required to report back to colleagues and peers with their key learnings from the conferences shared in the format of a blog with content focusing on translating science into clinical practice.
