2016 CPMEC Junior Doctor of the Year Award

Since 2008, CPMEC has recognised junior doctors who made significant contributions to prevocational medical education and training. It was agreed that a two-tiered award structure be put into place with jurisdictional winners selected by each PMC and an overall winner selected by the Principal Officers of each PMC. The competition for the CPMEC award was as competitive as ever in 2016 with nominations received from all CPMEC members.  As in the past, all state winners and the overall winner were recognised at the 2016 Forum gala dinner at MONA in Hobart. Each Division winner was presented with a medal and the overall winner received a trophy. The award recipient was a doctor with satisfactory clinical performance who made a significant contribution to teaching and learning, and contributed to the educational activities of their hospital and PMC or equivalent. Special achievements were also factored into the awards.


The winner of the 2016 CPMEC trans-Tasman Junior Doctor of the Year Award is Dr Gajen Perry.
