Medicine with Altitude Conferences ... sponsored by no-one


Acute Care Update medical conference dedicated to promoting rural health through the development and implementation of high-quality continuing medical education (CME) for rural generalists, ED doctors, and general practitioners. Conferences are conducted without pharmaceutical sponsorship, and delegates meet the costs of their own education and accommodation. No funding is ever sought or accepted from the pharmaceutical industry.

Families are warmly welcomed and encouraged to come too.

The conferences are eligible for QA&CPD points from the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and for PDP points from the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM).

Always set in beautiful mountains far away from telephones and schedules, we look forward to welcoming you to one of our medical refresher meetings very soon.



The world continues to face unprecedented times. Our thoughts are with everyone affected by COVID-19, especially our hard-working doctors and healthcare workers, and their families.

We are currently monitoring the situation and have made the difficult decision to postpone the Wanaka 2021 conference untill August 2022. For our complete conference schedule, we will provide updates when safety and certainty are more assured. Our priority at this time is to continue to support our community, delegates and supporting medical profession.

For advice during this time, please visit the government websites *NSW Health* and *Australian Government Department of Health*

If there is anything we can do to support our delegates at this time, or if you have questions regarding upcoming conferences, please contact us.

Stay safe,

Sue, Richard, James and the MWA team
