RDAQ Family Program Announced

The RDAQ 2020 Family program, provided by QRMFN and funded by Health Workforce Queensland, has been finalised!

This year the QRMFN Family Program will provide a range of activities for spouses, partners and children. We will be starting the program with an official meet and greet with afternoon tea for the spouses and kids before the age appropriate activities begin.

The kids will be creating a tie dye masterpiece they can take home, making sherbet and visiting the local sea animals the Sea World. The spouses will be creating their own masterpiece artwork with a step by step instructor while networking with old friends and meeting new ones. There is the opportunity for spouses to visit the spa and have some time out before celebrating with their partner at the David Horn Gala dinner.

SUPPORT our future doctors!


We invite medical delegates to support our subsidise-a-student program.

RDAQ is committed to growing the rural health workforce of the future. RDAQ 2020 is a unique opportunity for medical students to establish networks and rural mentors. Your subsidy will reduce student’s registration cost.

RDAQ manages this program in collaboration with the student rural health clubs in Queensland.

Each medical delegate who nominates to subsidise-a-student is invited to attend the student networking afternoon tea as a mentor. We encourage mentors to share their experience and passion for rural medicine with their nominated student. If you are unavailable to attend the afternoon tea we will invite you to nominate an alternative delegate as the student’s mentor.

If you would like to subsidise-a-student, please complete the section when registering. Your assistance in helping medical students of Queensland is appreciated.
