The Regional Fellows Committee will host their 2020 meeting from Wednesday 15 to Saturday 18 April 2020 at the Darwin Convention Centre, Darwin, Northern Territory.

The meeting will take place immediately following Easter 2020, it is hoped that this will allow attendees the opportunity to take a break in the region during the school holiday period, should they wish to do so.

The meeting will cater for RANZCOG Fellows, Diplomates and Trainee obstetricians and gynaecologists and others and will include a series of accredited workshops followed by a two-day scientific program on a range of topics important to women's health professionals.

About Scientific Meetings

In addition to hosting the RANZCOG Annual Scientific Meeting (RANZCOG ASM) and Regional Scientific Meetings (RSMs), RANZCOG holds a meeting once a year for Regional Fellows. The Regional Fellows Scientific Meeting (RF SM) is a forum for Regional Fellows to meet to discuss matters that have an impact on the practice of obstetrics and gynaecology in regional areas. These include:

  • RANZCOG matters
  • National Association of Specialist Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (NASOG) matters
  • Medico-political matters not covered by RANZCOG or NASOG e.g. AMA matters
  • Matters relating to problems in rural, regional and remote obstetrics and gynaecology (O&G) service provision, and
  • A scientific component with papers presented by Regional Fellows

This meeting is designed to provide Regional Fellows the opportunity to present the results of their clinical practice interests and discuss factors relevant to the provision of O&G services to the women in regional Australia. It also offers delegates the chance to share experiences, develop networks and mix socially.

Although RF SMs are targeted primarily at Regional Fellows and Regional trainees of the College, they also incorporate opportunities for General Practitioners (GPs) and Diplomates in the local area to learn and network.

The RF SM generally comprises two days of pre-conference workshops, two days of formal presentations and an industry exhibition. The conference is made up of a high-quality scientific program and social program.
