The Flinders University School of Medicine is celebrating its 40th Anniversary in 2014, with celebrations to be focussed around the week beginning Monday 21 July.

Be sure to put Thursday 24 July in your diary, when Professor Chris Baggoley AO will deliver the annual Chalmers Oration.  Professor Baggoley was the first Flinders student to graduate with a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (BMBS), and has gone on to become Australia’s Chief Medical Officer.  He plays a key, strategic role in developing and administering major health reforms for all Australians.

The Chalmers Oration honours Emeritus Professor John Chalmers AC who in 1975 took up the Foundation Chair of Medicine at Flinders Medical Centre and was a major and driving force in the development of the medical school at Flinders.

More details on the 40th celebrations will be available in the coming months.  Graduates and anyone interested in, or associated with the School, are encouraged to update their details to be included in the celebrations.

If you have a fond, interesting or unique story to tell about your time as a student in the School of Medicine, please email Kelly Meier.
