The award recognises Kadison's hard work and passion for rural medicine, where he has gained a reputation as a supportive mentor and colleague at Goulburn Valley Health.

Kadison studied medicine at the Rural Clinical School, based in his hometown of Shepparton.  He then completed an internship with the Murray to the Mountains Program and took up a casual position at the University, teaching clinical skills to first year medical students.

Since then Kadison has been a hardworking Junior Doctor who has continued training our medical students and junior staff members at Goulburn Valley Health where he is a highly valued staff member.

Kadison's dedication to rural health is an inspiration to us all.
