TRAM Track is underway for 2020, and we couldn't be more excited! We've been working hard to take Track online, lock in incredible guest speakers, make improvements to our content, and of course, select a red-hot cohort of excellent teams to take the TRAM journey this year.
This year, we have nine teams that have been chosen after a rigorous application process, from five different faculties and one medical research institute... and we're really excited to have our first team from the Melbourne Graduation School of Education! We can't wait to see how they progress over the next eight weeks.
