Something for everyone
The virtual friendly RMA21 program is here
This jam-packed virtual program is bursting at the seams with three days of traditional conference plenary sessions as well as an additional Speaker Series. There are over 70 sessions included in the six-part Speaker Series with content ranging from diversity in healthcare, mental fitness, environmental impacts, doctors in training and more.
By going virtual we can now offer you this conference live and on demand. If a session you're interested in doesn't fit into your schedule, you can watch the session later at your convenience. That's a virtual conference perk we could get used to!

It’s really enlightening to hear about some of the political landscape – the good and the bad. As a student, I think it helps to prepare us.Bron, Student
RMA18 was a lovely experience, during a difficult and isolating time of transition for me. It was a relief to see some familiar and friendly faces, as well as some new ones who ardently champion the cause for remote and rural medicine.Tarun, Registrar
RMA is progressive, inclusive, and welcome. There is no sense of hierarchy, every student is included and made to feel a part of the ‘rural mob’. It’s the best conference you will attend as a medical studentJessica, Student
RMA is one of the best conferences I have attended! I’ve learnt many insightful anecdotes not only from listening, but actually speaking and interacting with keynote speaks and other attendees.Justine, Student
I'm leaving RMA inspired, connected and reminded of why rural health is so wonderful.Skye, Junior Doctor
