All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts.
- William Shakespeare
This quote could be an analogy for health care and the role of a rural doctor. It is true that people come and go and our rural doctors play many parts during the course of their patients’ lives.
Our annual conference is an opportunity for you, our resident rural docs to take a break from the demands of your daily work, outpatients, inpatients, on call, running your practice, managing your staff, educating students, interns and registrars and participating in your communities.
This year’s conference “As you like it” has a clinical program based on the feedback we’ve received from you including the top five CPD topics identified from our most recent survey. It will also provide an update on the health system from both a Commonwealth and State perspective.
There will be a concurrent program on the Friday with a tailored student stream targeting Uni students from the three rural clubs.
Importantly it creates the opportunity for you to catch up with old friends and to celebrate with the doctors who have completed 25 years of service to rural communities at a black tie dinner on the Saturday night.
I hope that you will make room to take a couple of days out and join us.
