2014 General Practice Education and Training Convention
3-4 September 2014
Royal International Convention Centre, Brisbane Queensland
The General Practice Education and Training Convention provides an annual national forum for those involved in education and training in general practice and rural medicine.
The Convention aims to:
Bring delegates together to focus on current and future opportunities and challenges in general practice vocational training
Showcase innovation in medical education and training
Provide opportunities for networking and cross-fertilisation of ideas
Provide opportunities for GP trainers and educators to acquire skills from each other
Provide an opportunity for the academic advancement of general practice training
Cater to and welcome GP registrars and prevocational doctors and promote their involvement in education and training
Contribute to the development and promotion of general practice as the career of choice for future generations
Develop solutions for the future needs of general practice training and promulgate them to the wider community.
The Convention provides a positive and supportive forum for new presenters to share their work and ideas. This year the Convention committee encourages first-time GPET Convention presenters to self-identify when submitting their abstract. First-time presenters, who give their permission, will be identified as such in the final program to encourage delegates to attend and show their support.
