The Private Practice and Medico-Legal Conference will focus on future-proofing your practice. From e-health, to passing accreditation, exploring new income streams for private practice, digital marketing and managing emerging risks in practice, we have you covered.

The Friday program is designed for medical practitioners and practice support staff with a choice of two concurrent streams available for those who are new to practice, versus those who wish to develop and improve upon their existing practice procedures, technology and income. 

The Saturday program will appeal to both medical practitioners and practice support staff, and you can choose between practice management and/or medico-legal streams.
