The Australasian Association for Academic Primary Care (AAAPC) conference is held annually, and provides an opportunity for those involved in teaching and research in academic primary care to join together and showcase Australasia’s leading primary care research

GPEx enjoys being a part of this collegial environment, and were well represented again at this year’s conference in August, with presentations delivered by Assoc. Prof. Jill Benson AM and our academic registrars.

Reflecting on the conference, Assoc. Prof Jill Benson AM said:

It was very exciting to hear presentations from our Academic registrars at the AAAPC conference. They have all developed great research skills and presented very well. There was lots of interest in their research from others. It’s so wonderful have them as part of the GPEx Research team, as it boosts our enthusiasm for research, as well as theirs.”
