  • Venue: International Conference Centre, Sydney

It takes many people to create a competent and confident GP; from medical educators to supervisors to practice staff to administration and everyone in between. Together, these individuals create powerful learning and training communities that help build a robust general practitioner workforce for our local communities.

This conference will be of interest to everyone involved in GP training.

Conference theme:

Building communities: Bricks | Mortar | Imagination

  • The communities in which we work:
    • The bricks/foundations of GP training: How does GP training lead to healthier communities? For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities? For rural and remote communities?
  • The registrars’ community:
    • The mortar – The glue that brings us together: How do systems and people support GP registrars? How do they support registrars with different backgrounds i.e. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander registrars, rural registrars, ADF registrars, registrars in difficulty?
  • Learning communities:
    • Imagination: Using innovation, looking outside the box, collaboration. How do we learn better by sharing? How can we improve our GP education and training outcomes? How can we use innovation to improve GP education?
