Thank You Message from The Royal Australasian College of Physicians
On behalf of the Congress Organising Committee, I would like to thank all the Congress speakers and chairs for sharing their time and expertise to make the RACP Congress 2014 a success.  The Congress was attended by over 950 delegates, including physicians, physician trainees, allied health professionals and industry professionals.
I would also like to thank our Sponsors and Exhibitors whose support is most appreciated.
I hope to see many of you at next year’s Congress to be held on 24-27 May 2015 at the Cairns Convention Centre, Cairns Queensland.

 RACP Congress 2014 plenary video recordings available
Each year the RACP invites a number of eminent speakers to deliver Orations at Congress.

These Orations are steeped in tradition, being named after some of the finest pioneers of, and contributors to, medical education and the practice of specialty medicine throughout Australia and New Zealand.

Those invited to present the annual orations are also recognised for their outstanding services to various fields including medicine, education and research, and for their significant contribution and influence in their own area of speciality.
