The hybrid-format RACGP Practice Owners National Conference, at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre over 19–20 June, is available to in-person attendees, and all sessions will be live streamed and available on-demand for all registrants.
The conference is eligible for 18 CPD points and is designed to provide GPs with comprehensive business information, as well as the opportunity to connect practice owners with their peers from across the country and provide mentoring and assistance for aspiring practice owners.
The engaging two-day program has been developed in consultation with general practices with the aim of meeting the specific needs of owners and managers, particularly during what has been an unprecedented era of healthcare disruption.
Broken into four targeted streams, the program includes education, professional development and information updates relevant for:

  • current practice owners
  • rural practice owners
  • aspiring practice owners
  • practice managers.

All conference sessions will be presented by GP practice owners and subject-matter experts, giving attendees the opportunity to draw from a diverse range of experiences.
Highlights of the conference include the keynote address and plenary sessions:
