Dr Kathryn Connelly has been
awarded the Bryan Hudson medal
We are delighted to report that Dr Kathryn Connelly, one of Alfred Health’s Basic Physician Trainees, has been awarded the prestigious Bryan Hudson Medal for the best overall performance throughout Australasia in the 2017 RACP combined Written and Clinical Examinations (Adult Medicine).  The Alfred Basic Physician training program also achieved the highest average mark in Australasia for the written examination in 2017.  This training program is co-ordinated by A/Profs Laila Rotstein and Anne Powell who also co-ordinate the medical school program for Central Clinical School.

“The Alfred program was fantastic to be part of, with a great bunch of basic physician trainees and amazing support. I think it's incredibly important to recognise the amount of time and effort that goes into producing such a comprehensive curriculum. What (the team) involved have invested in the program is what really sets Alfred physician training apart and brings the best out of each and every trainee”, Kathryn said.
