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


Thank you to those who attended our Acute Medicine Conference over 1-2 September 2022 for making it an enjoyable event. Things ran well and everyone had a great time. Special thanks to our presenters, there was a wonderful range of topics covered and everyone did well. Congratulations to our Zebra Presentation winner: Simon Lee from Waitemata Hospital, all of our Zebra speakers did well.

Thank you to our Blue Carrot Catering Team and thank you to the staff at Dockside Restaurant.

We are aiming for our next Acute Medicine Conference to be in the second half of 2024. Please keep an eye on this page for any updates in this regard.




PLEASE NOTE: The layout of the venue and the provision of catering will follow COVID guidance at the time and spaces will be limited.

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-speciality 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.
