We acknowledge the Whadjuk Nyoongar people as the traditional custodians of the land on which the GPTEC conference will be held and we pay our respects to all Elders, past, present and emerging.


The reversal of decision by the Western Australian Premier to open the WA border to other Australians on 5 February means we can no longer guarantee quarantine-free passage to WA to enable you to attend the GPTEC Conference in May this year.

Unfortunately, GPTEC 2022 is cancelled. The decision was not taken lightly and has been made with enormous sadness and regret by the RTO Network (the chairs and CEOs). We had been very excited at the prospect of being able to offer a range of excellent presentations, as well as to take the opportunity to thank everyone for their years of support for GP training and to celebrate the thousands of GPs who have successfully Fellowed over the last 20 years.

In the second half of 2022, RTON will find other face-to-face ways for RTO staff to meet, celebrate and reminisce together.  Once the COVID situation is more settled, we will be in a better position to plan and advise you more on this.

If you submitted an abstract or were otherwise more intimately involved in GPTEC 2022, you will hear from us very soon about how we might otherwise recognise your work and passion in providing safe, expert doctors where they are needed most.

Thank you for your understanding and support, and we look forward to meeting with you at future opportunities.
