#RGPAS16 brimming with student ideas for #ruralGP

newlogosquaretextToday over 80 students, trainees and rural GPs will meet up in Inverness, for the annual conference of the Rural GP Association of Scotland.

This year’s event has attracted record numbers of attendees, and a stimulating programme of events is in store, along with lots of opportunities to chat, network and seek new ideas for rural practice.

As part of the RGPAS student scholarship programme, we have encouraged student delegates to submit video or audio clips of around 60 seconds, outlining their visions of the future of rural practice.

Not all clips are available as yet, and we will develop this page over the next week to include more clips, as well as add the photos of RGPAS students on this page too.  In the meantime, take a listen to the diverse and innovative ideas being put forward by the students below, all of whom will be joining us in Inverness.  Great to hear such an inspired group of students!

The conference will run from 2pm today – Thursday 3rd November – to Friday 4th November.  You can follow events on twitter using the hashtag #RGPAS16 – we hope to share reports and presentations from the conference on RuralGP.com soon after the conference too.
