The Health Research Society of Canterbury

Join us and develop a network with local health research professionals

The Health Research Society of Canterbury (HRSC) was formed in 1971 (as the Christchurch Medical Research Society, CMRS). Its role is to provide a forum for the presentation of health research and to promote such research generally. Membership is open to all people either involved in or simply interested in health research.
