ASSBI has always given and continues to give young aspiring students a collegial environment to meet their peers and more experienced clinicians and researchers at workshops and the annual conference. The student membership price is a low $80 per annum ($144 for 2 years) and includes all the benefits that a full membership offers as well as other opportunities.
ASSBI offers opportunities to student members as well as student non-members. Some initiatives include:
I joined to link in with other students and professionals working in the field of brain injury and to be informed of conferences, events, and new research. I stay because it's linked me in with a great little network of colleagues as well as for the reasons that I joined in the first place! Have met some amazing people since joining and as a PhD student that works off-campus it creates a support network that is extremely valuable for me.
ASSBI has provided fantastic networking and development opportunities throughout my time as a student representative and member. As an ASSBI student member, I have been able to attend conferences, professional development workshops and student networking events; all of which have allowed me to connect with peers & colleagues from around Australia.
