Annual Rural GP Conference 2021

Friday 7 and Saturday 8 May 2021

Adelaide Convention Centre


We are delighted to invite all rural GPs and GP registrars to join colleagues and friends at this year’s Annual Rural GP Conference.

This year we celebrate the rural GPs – and the strength of working with each other, with their practice staff, with other medical Specialists and of course with their communities.

We are honoured that His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC, Governor of South Australia and the National Rural Health Commissioner, A/ Prof Ruth Stewart have accepted our invitations to celebrate with SA’s rural GPs.

His Excellency and Mrs Lan Le will attend the gala dinner and long service celebration, and A/Prof Stewart will headline our keynote addresses on Friday and Saturday.

There will be a dedicated GP proceduralist workshop on Friday morning; and of course an exciting Family Program for partners and children.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Procedural Workshop

Focussing on the unique role and challenge of being a rural GP Anaesthetist and/or GP Obstetrician, this half-day program will examine clinical cases and more; tailored for GPAs and GP Obstetricians, and providing an opportunity rarely available to GP proceduralists – to share time and expertise with each other.  Dr Peter Stuart, Learn EM, will run the program.

GP Conference

National Rural Health Commissioner A/Prof Ruth Stewart will start our Friday afternoon program talking about national and local rural health issues.  The clinical program over the Friday and Saturday sessions will include cardiology, dermatology, endocrinology, rheumatology, mental health and more; all addressing the key theme of ‘Stronger Together’.  

Family Program

You might find it difficult to choose between the clinical program or the up close Lion Experience at Monarto Zoo dedicated solely to rural GP families on Saturday!  On Friday, there will be less teeth and more chatter at a high tea by the sea.  We think the family program will come with a guaranteed smiley face!

Long Service Medals

After having to cancel last year’s celebration, we are very excited that rural GPs with 35 years’ service will be honoured at the Conference Black Tie dinner and Medal Presentation.  His Excellency the Governor and Mrs Lan Le will join us for the celebrations.

Yes, I would like to attend
