GPTEC 2018 Switch On will challenge and stimulate, inspire and motivate educators, supervisors, registrars, leaders and funders.

Australia’s Regional Training Organisation network continues to transform and lead the way in training and education with its focus on post-graduate medical education for general practice.

General practitioners work in a complex health system, navigating national and regional policies, guidelines and issues while providing primary care services for each of Australia’s 24+ million citizens – all unique!

Preparing and training the GPs of today and tomorrow to have the skills, competence and professionalism to clinically care for and support every Australian, wherever they may live in our country, is the privilege and the responsibility of Australia’s Regional Training Organisation network. Working with local communities we develop Australia’s general practice workforce – it’s our sole purpose.

This year’s conference GPTEC 2018 Switch On focuses on empowering leaders in all aspects of general practice and primary healthcare. Together we will “dig deep” to explore new techniques in general practice education and rediscover the passion for learning and development.

While you are in South Australia, visit some of the world’s best medical and research facilities including the new Royal Adelaide Hospital and the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI). Stay for the weekend and enjoy the wonderful food and wine we have to offer, and our beaches are only a few minutes from the CBD… you could even hop over to Kangaroo Island for the day!

We are thrilled that we have also been able to secure the award-winning Adelaide Oval for the Gala Dinner.

Put GPTEC 2018 Switch On in your calendar – Adelaide Convention Centre: 11th to 13th September 2018.
