Gold Partners

Announcing GPTEC 2019 Gold Partners 

We are pleased to welcome RACGP and ACRRM as Gold Partners to GPTEC 2019

RACGP Statement 

As Australia’s largest professional general practice organisation, representing more than 40,000 members, it makes sense for the RACGP to be involved in what will be a unique, challenging and inspiring general practice conference.

The RACGP’s mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Australia by supporting GPs, GP registrars and medical students. What better opportunity to do this than by supporting a conference that will unite and inform the educators, supervisors, registrars, students, GPs and their healthcare teams who are a part of our profession?

General Practice has experienced renewed focus in recent years, with the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) Program through an agreement with the Federal Government for RACGP to select candidates for and oversee the delivery of the AGPT program. There have also been signs our political leaders are finally recognising the vital role of general practice in the community, but we still have a lot of work to do to safeguard the future of the profession we all hold so dear.

GPTEC2019 will provide an opportunity for us to celebrate our achievements together and look to the future, so that we can ensure Australian patients have access to the highest quality primary healthcare whenever they need it and no matter their location.

ACRRM Statement 

ACRRM is proud to be a Gold Partner of GPTEC 2019, a premier event for educators, supervisors, registrars and leaders of general practice training and education. GPTEC brings these key stakeholders together to inform and support the direction of general practice training.

This year’s conference theme Revolution: Redefining the future comes at a pivotal point of investment in rural generalism. As the home of rural generalists and rural general practitioners, we look forward to presenting content, hearing from industry experts, liaising with colleagues and networking with stakeholders to contribute to this timely and important discussion.

The recent announcement to commit to a National Rural Generalist Pathway aligns to ACRRM’s vision to have the right doctors in the right places, with the right skills, providing rural and remote people with excellent health care. There is no better time to choose a career as a rural generalist with ACRRM.

We encourage all conference participants to visit our social hub at the conference, grab a coffee, recharge your technology and learn how ACRRM Fellowship training is leading the way forward in rural generalism and rural general practice training.
