The 2020 conference has been re-scheduled to March 2021 continuing the original theme of “The Future of Rural Practice” and broadened to look more closely at disaster management and lessons learnt from the COVID-19 pandemic and how this will influence future rural practice over the next 10-15 years.

Other conference topics relevant to future rural practice will include:

  • New rural medical workforce models
  • The impact of climate change
  • New primary care models
  • Work-life balance in Rural Health
  • Clinical updates

There will also be pre-conference workshops covering aspects of Emergency Medicine and Mental Health.

This conference is aimed at current rural generalists, as well as students and junior doctors aspiring to become rural generalists.

The conference dinner on the Saturday evening will feature the Awards for Rural Doctor of the Year, Rural Registrar of the Year, and Rural Student of the Year.

Conference registrations are expected to open in December 2020.
