About us

On 3 November 2008 the University of Sydney Senate resolved to establish the Sydney Burns Foundation as a Division of the Sydney Medical School Foundation.

The aim of the Sydney Burns Foundation was to support research, education and scholarship in the field of burns medicine and reconstructive surgery at Sydney Medical School.

The inaugural Annual General Meeting of the Sydney Burns Foundation was held on Thursday 2 April 2009. The following office bearers were elected:

  • Clinical Associate Professor Peter Haertsch, Chairman
  • Professor Peter Maitz, Deputy Chairman
  • Mr Kevin Cranfield, Treasurer
  • The Hon. John J Fahey, Patron

On the 7 April 2014, the Sydney Burns Foundation was absorbed by Sydney Medical School Foundation and now exists as the Sydney Burns Fund.

The Sydney Burns Fund continues to support research, education and scholarship in the field of burns medicine and reconstructive surgery at Sydney Medical School.
