This year we look forward to welcoming Practice Managers from Australia, New Zealand and beyond to our 10th annual conference. Every year the Practice Managers’ Group review the feedback from the previous year’s attendees in order to identify and present topics and information that will assist you in your challenging and dynamic career.

We have important updates covering off topics such as Medicare, Practice Accreditation, Professional Development and Human Resources. We will be joined by a number of RANZCO Fellows providing thought provoking insights into current practice from a doctor’s perspective. There will also be some very informative sessions and forums discussing Patient Management Software, Benchmarking, Salary Surveys and General Management.

We have introduced a paper session, which we hope will become central to the annual program. These presentations often highlight work that is done by individuals or practices on continuous improvement within their workplace. Also, we have incorporated the major lectures from the main scientific program, to allow attendees to join the congress.

We are very pleased to have Cutcher and Neale join with us this year as our program sponsor. Stuart Chan from Cutcher and Neale will update us on a number of issues around the business and financial aspects of practice management. MIGA once again take part in our Monday program followed by drinks and a wonderful networking opportunity.

We are currently calling for expressions of interest for a Practice Managers’ Dinner on Monday 24 November, at the conclusion of the MIGA sponsored drinks.
