2020 National Medical/Forensic Update

  • 01/09/2020

The MEDSAC Board made the difficult decision to hold National Medical/Forensic Update as an online event.

This is for Update 2020 only, due to the COVID-19 situation.

We understand the value of meeting face to face and have booked Te Papa for Medical/Forensic Update on 29-30 October 2021.

The whole programme is available on-demand for three months after the event. 

Registration after 31 October 2020 grants access for three months after the date of registration.  

Registration closes on 31 December 2020.

Access to the online event is available on registration.
