RMA23 for future rural doctors

Attention future rural doctors!
Get involved at RMA23!

As the future of rural health, we love seeing a large contingent of students and interns at RMA each year. With a dedicated social event and in-conference sessions, attending RMA23 will provide our future rural doctors with countless opportunities to develop skills, meet new friends and mentors, be inspired, and network with some of the brightest minds in rural medicine.

Whether you are looking to volunteer, apply for sponsorship, or get the whole VIP experience by applying for the ACRRM President's Prize, there are plenty of ways to get involved at RMA23.

ACRRM and RDAA acknowledge the deep history and culture of lutruwita (Tasmania) and pay respect to the muwinina people as the Traditional Owners of nipaluna (Hobart) where we will gather for RMA23. While the muwinina people are no longer here due to the impacts of colonisation, we continue to acknowledge and recognise the palawa people of the island who continue to work together to maintain their identity and culture. We acknowledge that palawa still have connections to the skies, waters and land of lutruwita.
