GPTEC 2021 will encourage thought and discussion around seizing the opportunities that will be brought about by the changes on the horizon for general practice training and education.

The conference will inspire delegates to:

  • Discover new horizons: looking at new approaches, resources, technologies and research
  • Transform current horizons: looking at how we can adapt current approaches, strategies and resources throughout this period of transition
  • Preserve, maintain and protect enduring horizons: ensuring that the strategies, traditions and resources that have served us well in the past are maintained.
