There will be NO COST to attend the conference.


The 2021 conference will continue the original theme of “The Future of Rural Practice” and will also include looking at lessons learnt from the COVID-19 pandemic and how this will influence future rural practice over the next 10-15 years.

The conference proceedings will run as two parallel streams and topics relevant to future rural practice will include:

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

This conference is aimed at current rural generalists, as well as students and junior doctors aspiring to become rural generalists or pursue other types of rural practice.

The conference will also include presentation of the RDAT 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 mid-January 2021 and further details on the proposed program will be available at that time.
