Ever ventured into the unknown?

Did you dive in head-first – or were you tentative?

If you’ve not started exploring yet, what’s holding you back?

Stepping off the beaten path can be scary, but you’re not alone.

CCIM 2021 is celebrating the wonders of the unknown. Its many twists and sharp turns. The joys, the lessons to be learned, the victories to be won, and the boundless experiences to be had.

Hear from a diverse program of health professionals who’ve made bold, adventurous, and creative decisions with their own professional and personal journeys – fellow doctors who have ventured, battled, grown, and lived to tell the tale.

So, if you’re interested in unlocking doors to new opportunities, join us at Novotel Sydney Brighton Beach from 5-7 November 2021 – and, together, let’s discover new paths.

Featuring a jam-packed day of pre-conference workshops, and 2 full days of sessions, a live podcast recording with special guests and (of course!) a Saturday night networking event thanks to Blu Gibbon, it’s your chance to start making your life what you’ve always wanted it to be.

And after a 2 year wait to gather the CCIM clan together in one geographical location, this year’s event is a long overdue chance to genuinely connect. To share our stories, discuss our different perspectives and help one another realise our dreams.
