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
