Senior Doctors Conference
AMA Queensland will host the Senior Doctors Conference at Water's Edge in August. Situated on the top level of Portside Wharf in Hamilton, overlooking Brisbane River, Water's Edge is the most spectacular new waterfront conference venue in Brisbane. The one-day conference will be followed by a networking function on the balcony with drinks and canapés.
Last year’s conference saw almost 100 senior active and retired doctors travel nationally for the first ever Senior Doctors Conference. This year's program will cover topics such as: healthy ageing; encore careers; and senior doctors and the health system.
We will also hear from delegates of the conference by having a soapbox session in the afternoon. A soapbox is a raised platform on which one stands to make an impromptu speech, often about a political subject. If you have an issue or topic you would like to raise let our events team know on the day of the conference and we will give you a form to complete.
The program has been created by AMA Queensland, the Australian Senior Active Doctors Association (ASADA) and members of the conference planning committee.
