ACEM to host inaugural Regional, Rural and Remote Emergency Medicine Conference

Australasian College for Emergency Medicine

The Australasian College for Emergency Medicine is hosting its inaugural Regional, Rural and Remote (RRR) Emergency Medicine Conference in Darwin/Gulumerrdgen from Sunday 7 to Tuesday 9 July 2024.

You’re invited to join us in Darwin or virtually and find out what a career in RRR emergency medicine could be like. Special discounted rates are available for students who plan on attending in person or virtually.

Following the theme Shaping Our Landscape, the conference will bring together emergency care providers from across Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand to share their experiences and expertise; to celebrate the landscapes in which they work, and live, and thrive.

Featuring an in-depth program covering almost every facet of RRR emergency care, the conference also includes a line-up of passionate keynote speakers, including Dr Sarah Goddard and Dr Richard Fleet.

Dr Sarah Goddard is a proud Kaytetye woman from the Barkly Region in the Northern Territory whose journey into medicine has been inspiring for those in her hometown. She is the second Aboriginal female Fellow of the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine and the first Aboriginal Rural Generalist from the Northern Territory. Dr Sarah will explore the way our healthcare landscapes are shaped by First Nations peoples.

Dr Richard Fleet is an emergency physician, clinical health psychologist, patient advocate and influential figure in rural emergency medicine research. As a full professor at Université Laval in Québec City, Canada, his work has been instrumental in highlighting the disparities in emergency care accessibility across Canada, particularly focusing on the crucial differences between rural and urban areas.
