Awards and prizes

The College has a number of awards and prizes to encourage students and reward members who make an outstanding contribution.

Gold Medal

This category is aimed at promoting and motivating the pursuance of excellence in the delivery of health services in Australasia and recognising outstanding leadership and recent achievements in the provision of health services in Australasia. A nominee will be a member of the College and an outstanding leader who has made recent and exceptional contributions to the health care system. They will have a passion for excellence and demonstrate a tireless commitment to improving the system for the benefit of patients and those who work within it. They value innovation and are committed to developing partnerships and strategic relationships. These leaders are very much seen as role models for our next generation of leaders and embody the core health system values.
