Vale Dr Rees McCarthy

We express our sincere sympathy to Dr Rees McCarthy's family for the loss of this very great man.

Rees was a long serving and highly esteemed GP mentor and educator for many years with our Department and the Melbourne Medical School. He mentored many generations of medical students with both his clinical expertise and his life's wisdom. He was always so highly regarded by all students and staff alike for his integrity, passion for caring for people in general practice and for teaching medicine.

Rees was inducted into the Melbourne Medical School's Academy of Clinical Teachers as a Fellow in 2013 in recognition of his immense contribution to teaching and mentorship.

He will be sadly missed by all of us but his legacy lives on in many young doctors lucky enough to have had him as their tutor.
