Academic Program.


A number of health issues prevalent in Vietnam have informedsome of the topics for this conference. In addition, topics that are highly relevant to GPs with families have been selected to provide a wide-ranging and interestingacademic program.

STIs and other Infectious diseases

As more people, especially young ones, travel to places like Vietnam as backpackers, it is important for doctors in Australia to be aware of infectious diseases prevalent in such countries to provide pre and post-travel advice. This series of presentations will provide a very useful update on STIs and other infectious diseases acquired locally and from travel.

Pain management

Managing patients with chronic pain can be very difficult, in particular with new guidelines eschewing opioids. These talks will provide up-to-date concepts and tools for dealing with acute and chronic pain, including drugs, interventional and psychosocial modalities.


This series will cover some of the more challenging paediatric problems encountered in general practice including ADHD, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, allergies and new recommendations for introducing nuts and eggs and recognising developmental and behavioural abnormalities in children and adolescents.

IT and medicine

Information technology is everywhere, including an increasing role in medicine. In these talks learn about the now and the future and be at the cutting edge.

Main Conference.


What a fantastic opportunity to visit the charming town of Hoi An, spend quality time with your family and gain CPD points in a relaxed environment.

Historic Hoi An has so much to offer – traffic-free streets lined with colourful colonial houses transformed into boutiques, cafes, tailor shops and art and antique galleries, the grand old homes of Chinese merchants, French villas, local markets, wooden pagodas, colourful lanterns and the bustle of the Thu bon River. Nearby, are traditional farming and fishing villages, classical craftsmen, fragrant rice paddies and rickety floating bridges.

And do not forget the fantastic Vietnamese food!

Our program has been arranged so that you have plenty of time to explore Hoi An on your own, relax by the hotel pool or participate in local adventures of your choosing.
