WHAT TO EXPECT

We want this year to be a true celebration – a chance to come together in person, gain new knowledge and skills to take back to your practices, and reignite your passion for integrative and wellness medicine and all that it can offer.

The conference will run from 10am-5.30pm on Friday 18th November with the option to stay on for a cocktail event and will resume on Saturday 19th November from 8.30am-5.30pm followed by a special musical event. Full catering is provided as well as lots of useful information and advice from suppliers in the wellness industry.

The conference will offer:

  • an opportunity to learn and update your knowledge in the field of integrative medicine, in a relaxed and safe environment
  • access to the latest research on integrative medicine
  • an opportunity to interact with representatives of leading natural healthcare companies
  • practical skills that you can apply in your professional and personal lives
  • a stimulating and interactive environment in which you can reach out and build a community with others and the industry.

To get a taste of what you can expect at an AIMA Conference, take a look at what past attendees have had to say:

 “I think it’s THE conference where you can find that depth of knowledge on the nutritional, social, environmental and spiritual level of healing that we’re all looking for – I come every year!”- past attendee

“It’s really inspiring, really engaging and gives me lots of thought for future practice” – past attendee

 “You get to meet people who are doing different things, stepping outside the square, willing to try new things to help their patients get the best care in any way they can” – past attendee

The 2022 AIMA Conference activity will be accredited by The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP) and the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) as continuing education activities.
