Fantastic conference in Hobart, Tasmania this week with the AMSA (Australian Medical Students Association) at the Hobart 2010 AMSA Into the Wild Conference running from Sunday 4th July to Sunday 11th July 2010.
The AMSA Convention this year was more popular than ever! The registration system processed the first 800 participants in under 5 minutes, selling out in 4 minutes and 2 seconds.
