Annual Rural GP Conference 2021

Friday 7 and Saturday 8 May 2021

Adelaide Convention Centre


Conference Program

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, 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 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

Offering a tailored approach to procedural clinical development, these Procedural Workshops will ensure you receive the most relevant and up to date content available.

"Challenging Times : Managing High Risk Emergencies in a Rural Environment" is a procedural workshop for all rural GPs, while "The WOKE Session : Working on a Knife's Edge" builds on the RESP Anaesthetic and RESP Obstetric Workshops for rural GP Anaesthetists and GP Obstetricians.


GP Conference

National Rural Health Commissioner 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

Let us entertain you with this jam packed family program. Unwind with afternoon tea on the elegant Hilton balcony while the kids are entertained with the thrills and spills of their very own circus and come face to face with one of Australia’s largest Lion prides at Monarto Zoo. This weekend has something for everyone!


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.
