Welcome from Head of Department

Thank you for taking the time to read our newsletter.

In this newsletter we are in the midst of change. One month ago we were told to prepare for moving the Department from its current location at 200 Berkeley Street Carlton to the Tri-radiate Medical School Building on the corner of Royal Parade and Grattan Street. But before this we are moving to Levels 2 and 3, 780 Elizabeth Street while our place in the Tri-radiate is refurbished. The Department of Optometry and Vision Sciences will go into our old location.

We had a great Awards Night on Tuesday 21st May where we celebrate the contribution of our Primary Care Community to Teaching and Research and recognises outstanding examples of this. Each year it is difficult to choose winners as there are so many wonderful experiences students describe when on placement in a general practice and similarly there are many wonderful stories from researchers about general practice contributors.

We hope you enjoy some highlights from the awards night and the other events from the last three months in this edition of the newsletter, as well as upcoming events for your interest.

Professor Lena Sanci, Head of Department
