GPTEC 2021: Our Evolving Horizons

Darwin is on the horizon for GPTEC 2021

As general practitioners, registrars and everyone involved in GP training across Australia continue to deal with the ongoing challenges associated with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Conference Organising Committee would like to share our heartfelt support and solidarity with your families.

We are pleased to confirm GPTEC will be held from 7 to 9 September 2021.

Northern Territory General Practice Education is excited to bring the key stakeholders in Australian general practice training and education together at the Darwin Convention Centre for GPTEC 2021 to focus on the evolving horizons we are jointly facing.

There is no doubt general practice training and education in Australia is in a state of transition: now is the time to look to the horizon for what is to come, what currently is, and what has served us well in the past.

Medical and cultural educators, GP supervisors, registrars, medical students, junior doctors and program administrators will be united in the Territory’s tropical capital city as we continue the strong tradition of GPTEC; Australia’s only conference focussing on training and education of GP registrars.

Just as a horizon provides a stable constant, Australia’s regional training organisations have forged the path for training our general practice workforce, ensuring the GPs of tomorrow have the skills, knowledge and confidence required to meet the primary health care needs of their communities.

GPTEC 2021 will encourage thought and discussion around seizing the opportunities that will be brought about by the changes on the horizon for general practice training and education. The conference will bring the best aspects of both colleges to the fore, so the RTO network can look to the horizon for clarity as we continue to develop a sustainable general practice workforce.

The conference will inspire delegates to:

  • Discover new horizons: looking at new approaches, resources, technologies and research
  • Transform current horizons: looking at how we can adapt current approaches, strategies and resources throughout this period of transition
  • Preserve, maintain and protect enduring horizons: ensuring that the strategies, traditions and resources that have served us well in the past are maintained.

Be sure to add GPTEC 2021: Our evolving horizons to your calendar and join us in Darwin to consider the transition ahead for our network from a new perspective and help shape the future of GP training and education in Australia.

While you are in the Territory, take the time to explore our monumentally vast landscapes and ancient Aboriginal culture. The world-famous Litchfield, Nitmiluk and Kakadu National Parks are on Darwin’s doorstep, and a trip to Alice Springs and nearby Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is an experience of a lifetime.

Here in the Territory, you will experience nature like you have never seen before, meet characters you will remember forever, and make connections that will last a lifetime.

We look forward to welcoming you in 2021.
