GP17 student registration opportunity for NSW and ACT medical students

Would you like to attend the biggest General Practice conference of the year for FREE?

A career in general practice offers enrichment, reward, financial security, and a chance to work across a broad scope managing a diverse range of health conditions.  Rural general practice similarly offers a great diversity of experience with further opportunity to work both within the community and across in-hospital care.

The RACGP’s annual conference GP17 offers a great chance to explore this exciting career option, offering a major learning and network opportunity which will take place in Sydney from 26 -28 October. The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners is Australia’s largest professional general practice organisation with over 35,000 members. RACGP Rural promotes general practice in rural and remote Australia and has been supporting GPs working in or towards a career in rural general practice for over 20 years.

RACGP Rural would like to offer 20 of NSW & ACT medical students (who are members of their University rural health club) the opportunity to experience the conference for free. RACGP Rural is offering a full day registration on the Thursday 26 October for you to experience the first day of GP17 conference, valued at $150 per person. So why not go along to visit the exhibition, engage with passionate general practitioners and find out more about the RACGP? Information about the conference and what it can offer you is available on the conference website.
