The Remote Vocational Training Scheme (RVTS) held its second remote medical education conference, RMEC13, on 28-29 June 2013 in Brisbane, Queensland. It provided a forum for discussing the factors influencing the education of doctors practicing in rural and remote areas of Australia and overseas. The conference explored how the educational needs of remotely-located doctors can be addressed depending upon location and cultural context, while considering the role that new technology plays in the delivery and enhancement of learning.

Activities over the two days included education workshops, discussion groups, paper presentations and CPD activities. A number of inspiring keynotes explored the key themes, uncovering new developments, challenging thinking and inspiring debate.
