20th Medical Education & Training Forum

Monday, 12 October 2015 to Thursday, 15 October 2015 from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Darwin Convention Centre, Darwin, Australia


Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to Darwin, Northern Territory.

On behalf of the organising committee, it is my privilege to welcome you to the 20th Medical Education and Training Forum. The forum’s theme of `Integrate, Innovate, Inspire’, we hope will create opportunities for discussion to align and build on approaches to medical education across Australia, New Zealand and internationally. With Darwin being gateway for our northern neighbours into Australia we are particularly excited about creating an environment to learn from experiences and innovations in Asia.

As in past years, the focus of this Forum will be on medical prevocational and post graduate years of training. With changing environment within health care services internationally, innovations are occurring in how medical education and training is funded and provided. Discussions are also occurring about ways and means of making medical education and training workforce sustainable. We will look forward to exchange of these experiences and innovations at this Forum.

In addition to extending invitation to medical education and training fraternity through Confederation of Post Graduate Medical Education Council, State and Territory Post Graduate Medical Councils and Ministries/Departments of Health in Australia and New Zealand, invitation to attend this conference is also being extended internationally through Medical Deans and Vice Chancellors of Universities in our near neighbourhood.
A multicultural Darwin, with more than one hundred ethnic groups represented in our community is also a magical social venue. I would also like to extend an equally warm welcome to families and friends accompanying delegates to this Forum. Our social program will keep you busy, excited and engaged over these few days and give you a flavour of what Darwin hospitality is all about.

On behalf of the Conference Organising Committee, I extend a warm welcome to you as a delegate, presenter, sponsor, exhibitor or an accompanying delegate, and look forward to your participation in an outstanding 20th National Medical Education & Training Forum in Darwin.

Yours sincerely,

Professor Dinesh Arya
