Welcome

We would like to invite you to join us for The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners' Annual Conference – New Zealand's only national GP conference presented by GPs, for GPs and their general practice teams.

Our 2019 conference is being held at the Dunedin Centre, between Friday 26 – Sunday 28 July 2019. Our extended programme includes our highly-regarded Quality Symposium, which will be held on Thursday 25 July.

New Zealand's primary health care sector is continuously evolving, and with opportunities like the Health and Disability Systems Review, and several high-profile bills on the parliamentary agenda, we know GPs will be keen to gather, debate and learn. 

Our conference provides an opportunity for delegates to connect, network, and hear from a range of international and national experts.

Our 2019 theme is: Realising the potential in primary health care: technology, teamwork and equity.  The whakataukī we're using to celebrate this theme for the conference is:

te mahi tahi ka whakatutuki
Together weaving the realisation of potential

and the Quality Symposium is:

E kore e ngaro he takere waka nui
The keel of a great canoe cannot be lost

The six programme streams selected reflect priority learning areas for general practice. They are: clinical; Māori health and Equity; future technology; diversity; mental health; and medical humanities.

We look forward to welcoming you to Dunedin in July 2019!
