This week, Hobart was lucky to host the General Practice Education & Training conference (GPTEC).  Over 500 delegates from around the country visited to discuss their capacity and options, while learning new techniques and planning new strategies for the future.  All while enjoying some beautiful clear crisp weather in Australia’s southern most capital city.

First off, was a visit to the newly recognised “world’s best” MONA museum and art gallery for some drinks, introductions and catching up with old friends.  I think the cool Tasmanian air (on the ferry ride up the river) was a shock to some new visitors to the state – especially the Northern Territory delegation.

The conference kicked off at the Hotel Grand Chancellor with an great Welcome to Country display from members of the Tasmanian Aboriginal community, performing traditional dances. Then, an awe inspiring keynote address from Dr. Bob Brown. The former leader of the Greens (also a former GP), who discussed his perspective on preventative medicine and the role that the natural world plays in that process.

The Gala dinner was held at the recently refurbished Mac 2 conference centre.  With fire twirlers, drummers, crooners, an 80’s band – all wrapped up in an amazingly decorated setting. A great time was had by all.

It was an honour to have this wonderful organisation visit Tasmania for their annual conference once more. Great job by the organisers from GPTT and Conference Logistics
