General Practice Training and Education Conference 2018

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.

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.

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