The world of medicine is evolving more rapidly than ever before. The annual ‘Australia and New Zealand General Medicine Update’ has been designed to showcase a curated selection of relevant topics in internal medicine with updated information about new strategies and recent guidelines. Over a period of three days, national and internationally renowned sub-specialty experts with strong academic backgrounds will discuss the common diseases seen by a general physician in everyday practice.
With over 25 interactive lectures covering the core areas of various subspecialties of internal medicine, this update will be of immense value to the busy practicing General Physician, General Medicine Advance Trainee as well as the Basic Physician Trainee who wish to update their clinical acumen.
