Dont miss these keynotes

The 6th Rural and Remote Health Scientific Symposium will celebrate 20 years since the establishment of the first university department of rural health in 1997 and will highlight the research and knowledge that followed this innovation.  It will also celebrate the leadership that has emerged from the rural and remote health research community, while at the same time, support early career academics and the next generation of rural health researchers.
Keynote speakers include Professor Paul Worley, Australia’s first National Rural Health Commissioner; Melbourne Laureate Professor Hugh Taylor on Indigenous eye health; and Professor Alan Cass from the Menzies School of Health Research.
The Symposium program features some of the giants in the field of rural and remote health research and a new wave of researchers who have built on their work to take the sector to a new level. There’s a great sense of momentum and the Symposium will be an important mechanism to connect and maintain this progress.
The Symposium is being convened by the National Rural Health Alliance in partnership with the Australian Rural Health Education Network (ARHEN), the Federation of Rural Australian Medical Educators (FRAME), and the Primary Health Care Research and Information Service (PHCRIS).
The full program is available on the Symposium website at and registration is now open.
