On behalf of the Postgraduate Medical Education Council of Tasmania (PMCT), it is my great pleasure to invite you to the 21st National Prevocational Medical Education Forum. This year’s forum takes place against a background of major changes and challenges in prevocational medical education in Australia and New Zealand, and this is reflected in the themes that we have chosen for the forum.  The main theme is ‘The Old and New of Medical Education’ and addresses the lessons we can learn from the past while acknowledging the challenges and opportunities of the future.  The presence of the famous Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) is an obvious influence, and we look forward to entertaining you with our unique Conference Dinner.
The issues of Workforce (particularly rural workforce), Wellbeing, and New Ideas/Current Issues in Medical Education form the other main themes of the conference, providing the opportunity to share information and discuss challenges in these areas through keynote addresses by expert speakers, free paper sessions and workshops. There will also be plenty of opportunities for networking with colleagues during the pre-conference special interest meetings and the various social engagements.
So, on behalf of PMCT, I would like to welcome you to the beautiful city of Hobart. I hope you find the Forum informative and stimulating and that you have the opportunity to sample some of the many delights that Tasmania has to offer.
Associate Professor Terry Brown
Chair, PMCT
