2017 marks the beginning of a new era for the RACP Congress, a flagship event and meeting place for Australian and New Zealand physicians. Congress has been the College’s ‘stand-out’ annual event since 1939, bringing physicians together to celebrate medical progress and achievement, shape healthcare policy positions, accelerate education and training and enhance patient care. 

The new ‘shared interests’ focus of Congress 2017 is a landmark response to RACP research on the needs and interests of its 25,000 members.

Fellows of the RACP want their flagship event to deliver unique and collaborative conversations on the big issues that count, provide specialist and cross-disciplinary clinical insights, showcase cutting edge examples of ‘best practice’ and knowledge transfer and deliver highly relevant, professional development and skills building workshops.

RACP Congress 2017, Bringing Specialists Together. Sharing Knowledge. Building Skills is your opportunity to: 

  • learn about medical breakthroughs
  • hear the latest clinical updates
  • join the conversations on the ‘big issues’ that are relevant to all physicians; obesity, disability, ageing and end-of-life issues
  • attend high energy, cross-disciplinary think tanks
  • network with global thinkers and healthcare leaders, socialise with peers and forge new professional ties 

 A dynamic program of presentations, workshops and panel discussions is being developed which is sure to leave you inspired and energised.
