Graduate success stories
Northern Clinical School website now proudly hosts the success stories of our graduates, in the hope to attract new students, encourage our existing students and show them possibilities, and to share the success of our graduates with the rest of the world. To this end, we ran a survey among our primary supervisors at the end of last semester, and asked them to nominate a successful graduate student of theirs to appear on this webpage. Two of these stories are already live on the following link: http://sydney.edu.au/medicine/northern/future-student/alumni/index.php
If you are a supervisor and would like to nominate one of your graduate students for this new feature, please contact Research Administration Officer Burcu Karlsson at for details.
Elective Supervisor Scholarship Fund
In recognition of the commendable work of our dedicated elective supervisors and their teams, Sydney Medical School Northern has set up an Elective Supervisor Scholarship Fund. The purpose of this fund is to support departments or teams which host elective students by the provision of a scholarship to contribute to scholarly development of team members. Your team must have hosted at least one elective student in the department within the last 12 months. An example would be the travel costs associated with attending a conference where they are presenting or to attend a relevant educational event (such as conferences, training etc). Elective supervisors or team members may apply for funds to facilitate learning & development of a junior member/nurse or doctor of their team once a year.
For more information please see this link http://sydney.edu.au/medicine/northern/tutors/elective-scholarship-fund.php
Applications for the previous 12 months are due by the 31st March 2014.
Generous donation by class of 2013
One of the final acts of the 2013 graduating class here at Northern Clinical School was to kindly donate a Tens machine to assist with patient care. This generous donation was very much appreciated by Dawn Hopper of the Mona Vale Hospital Palliative and supportive care service! She was delighted to accept this gift to be used by their physios for patient care. Thank you class of 2013!
