RACP Congress is the pre-eminent event for physicians in Australia and New Zealand. It is the only event in Australasia that brings physicians from all specialties together to tackle the big issues that affect us all.


In 2018 you will hear from thought leaders from around the region and around the world as we explore:


How technology is disrupting the health sector

Robotics – Will robots be running the hospital of the future?
Big data – How does it inform decision and policy making?
E-health – What are the benefits, risks and issues?

Mental health of Doctors

Demystifying mandatory reporting laws
Stories from patient physicians –  If we’re not well, how can we look after our patients?

Disruption and sustainable health care

What are we doing to create sustainable health systems
What do patients want? – Workforce planning for multidisciplinary teams

Medically unexplained symptoms

The role of the brain and mind in chronic and complex pain disorders
Why do doctors find dealing with medically unexplained symptoms so difficult?


… and much more. In 2018 the RACP Congress program will pose challenges, share the latest clinical and research updates and encourage delegates to think differently.


From Monday, 14 to Wednesday, 16 May 2018, RACP Congress will be held at the International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney). As the premier annual event on the RACP calendar, Congress includes the College’s convocation ceremony as well as a diverse program with topics that span the breadth of the medical industry.

Congress usually attracts more than 1000 physicians and trainees from Australia, New Zealand and around the globe.
