The coronavirus (COVID-19) situation is rapidly evolving. For the latest from the College visit

Hobart last hosted our Annual Scientific Meeting in 2012, and it’s with great pleasure and excitement that we dare you to come back and again push the boundaries of what’s possible and necessary for a stimulating 21st century medical conference.

We’ve had a long hard look at ourselves and we’ve come to the realisation that whilst the nature of our specialty and the very reason for conferences has changed significantly, every conference falls into the predictable trap of essentially being a variation on the same theme, even down to the alternating fish and chicken meals and unimaginative cover bands at the dinner.

Why do you even go to conferences? Stop and think about it.

Come to Hobart to experience “The Changing Climate of Emergency Medicine”, but don’t come to just sit and be a passive spectator. The talent lies within the audience; be an active part of the whole organism as we bring the corridor conversations into the auditorium. Participate, engage, contribute, be a part of the greater whole. Every single one of you.

No passengers will be admitted.
