On 8 December 2016, the Obstetrics and Gynaecology Department held the third annual Chris Maxwell Medal for the best registrar presentation of 2016.

Five registrars gave exceptional presentations, showcasing the depth of quality among our trainees. Congratulations to all entrants, but on the night there could only be one winner.

The Chris Maxwell Medal went to Dr Emma Clifton, for a presentation on spontaneous haemoperitoneum in a twin pregnancy. The medal was presented by Dr Chris Maxwell, who was the Clinical Director for 10 years and retired two years ago after 30 years of service to PANCH and Northern Health.

Congratulations Emma!

Dr Paul Howat would also like to congratulate Dr Alice Truong and Dr Rangi De Silva for passing their MRANZCOG examinations.

Both of these doctors spent six months with Northern Health on rotation from the Mercy, and it’s great to see them succeed and pass their final examinations. They both contributed very well to the department during their attachment and we enjoyed working with both of them.

On behalf of the O&G department, we wish them both well for the future.
