WONCA World Rural Health conference all set for April

This year will see the WONCA World Rural Health Conference take place in Cairns, Australia from 29th April.  It will be preceded by the National Rural Health Conference of Australia, which will promise to bring even more research, innovation and collaboration to the wider event.

Registration is now available from the conference website.  The organisers have also put together this film to whet the appetite of potential delegates.  It looks set to be a fantastic event.  RuralGP.com will be there, and we hope to run a similar range of interviews and podcasts like we did from Dubrovnik in 2015.  This reflective commentary from the 2015 conference demonstrates that the conference offers a unique chance to get together with like-minded confreres and share great practice from across the world.

We hope to see you there!

Early bird registration fees available until the end of January.

… and if that’s not enough (!), here’s Ian Couper of South Africa, being interviewed in Dubrovnik in 2015 giving some encouragement for others – particularly students and new doctors – to attend WONCA in Cairns…
