On behalf of the Hunter Postgraduate Medical Institute, I wish to invite you to attend our 13th Annual Health Care Professionals’ Conference and Exhibition which will be held at the Newcastle Exhibition and Convention Centre (NEX), Newcastle West on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 November, 2021

What a crazy time we have all had over the last year! Here is a perfect opportunity to network in a safe environment with your colleagues.

We will run the HPMI Weekend differently this year. Due to COVID we cannot have registrants swapping rooms throughout the day. To combat this issue we will have everyone register for only the stream they wish to attend and the other stream will be recorded to view after the event. All sessions will be available to registrants for a few weeks after the conference. After this period only the sessions that we have permission from the presenters will be uploaded to the HPMI educational site. There will be an opportunity to do a Neurology Accredited Activity during the weekend. You must complete a predisposing activity, a reinforcing activity and attend or stream either the Saturday or Sunday Neurology Stream.


This year we will be live streaming the Neurology and General Medicine streams so people who cannot attend in person can still benefit from this educational weekend.
