​As stated in The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) news, the country ranks high in global system health comparison. One of the reasons is because of the innovations and continuous room for further improvement of the system.

General Practitioners in the country are supportive of conferences that can sharpen their knowledge better and improve their practice.

Eventually, general practitioners who have shown great service to the country and the community are given acknowledgments through many nomination programs.

In this blog, information about the upcoming medical nominations and conferences in Australia will be elaborated on.
