In addition to welcoming New Fellows from all over Australia, the session included the presentation of this year’s RACGP awards, including the Rose-Hunt Award, and the best GP, General Practice Registrar, Rural GP, Rural Registrar, General Practice Supervisor and General Practice of the Year, and many others.
 
Following the awards, Dr Jay Parkinson gave the 46th William Arnold Connolly Oration. A physician from the US, Dr Parkinson is the CEO and founder Sherpaa, the world’s first online medical practice and is keen to challenge the way in which doctors and patients communicate and solve problems. He echoed Dr Seidel’s sentiments that the New Fellows are the future of their profession, but warned them that future will not always come easily. Dr Parkinson challenged these new GPs to ‘create a new status quo’.
 
‘Change doesn’t come easy, but it’s a lot of fun,’ he said.
