Acute Medicine Conference

The Acute Medicine Conference is the only event in New Zealand that focuses on General Medicine in the first 48 hours.

This conference caters for General Physicians, trainees in General and Acute Care Medicine, and is also of interest to those seeing acute medical patients in the Emergency Department and sub-specialty medical.

The programme covers a vast range of conditions that you are likely to encounter on-call and on the wards during those first 48 hours.

The presentations are case based with practical suggestions for diagnosis and management of acute medical problems.

Take this opportunity to update your knowledge, improve patient safety and network with colleagues from around New Zealand and Australia.

Don’t miss this great opportunity to be a part of the

Acute Medicine Conference.


The organising committee for the Acute Medicine Conference( AMC) regret to inform you that the meeting planned for 14 and 15 November 2019 has to be postponed. We realised after the release of the dates that there was a significant clash with the FRACP written examination course in Dunedin and that this would make it very difficult for RMOs to get study leave for the AMC. Our plan is to return to our usual calendar location and reschedule for August 2020.We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused. Please contact us if you have inadvertently booked flights or accommodation based on the November dates.

The AMC will return in 2020. We are committed to delivering an interactive and relevant meeting focused on Acute Medical care in the first 48 hours.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Drs Katie Thorne, Sinead Donnelly, Matt Kelly, Dorothy Dinesh and Tom Thomson
