Farewell to Bernie Cooper

After 19 years of dedicated service to the Department, Bernie Cooper- Academic Programs Coordinator, has set her sights on a well-deserved retirement.

Since 2001, Bernie has been the first point of call for students and our GP teaching community. She has ensured the smooth running of thousands of placements and hundreds of tutorials and lectures.

Bernie has helped to recruit practices to numerous new GP placements as the medical curriculum has been developed. Even during particularly challenging teaching years such as the double teaching year in 2012, Bernie has been successful in facilitating fantastic placement experiences in general practice for both students and practices.

All of us in the department and particularly the teaching team will miss her warm and friendly demeanour and encyclopaedic knowledge of GPs and clinics!
