The purpose of the symposium was to generate interest, inspiration, and connections among leaders in the fields of medical education and training, medical regulation, and the wider medical community, and to identify problems and projects relating to the future of medical training and service provision for which cross-College and international collaboration may be effective.

This is a significant part of the tripartite collaboration between the three colleges of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP), the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) and the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) and in association with the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) and The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP).
