The Queensland Hand Surgery Society (QHSS) holds an Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) towards the end of each year. The ASM is a two-day scientific meeting held over a weekend. Scientific papers are presented by members, associates and registrar members of the society. Each year we invite several guest speakers to the conference. In recent years we have had an International, National and QLD guest speaker.

Prizes are awarded for the best scientific paper in the categories of Consultant Surgeon, Therapist and Registrar.

Grant applications for research projects will be considered at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) held during the conference.
