MONDAY 4 MAY 2020

Congress theme: Balancing medical science with humanity

Monday Sub-topic: The Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) has made the decision to cancel RACP Congress 2020 and postpone the Convocation Ceremony, which were scheduled for May 2020. These difficult decisions were not taken lightly. Considering the global repercussions of COVID-19, as physicians it is our responsibility to put the safety of our members and the community we serve above all else. We are currently looking at alternative options for delivering the Congress 2020 program and will provide an update on this as soon as we are able. Any enquiries can be directed to racpcongress@racp.edu.au.
