The winner of the iPad competition has been announced as Dr Jia
Miin Yip, a Trainee in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in South
Australia. The winner was selected at random from 56 responses from
Fellows, Trainees and IMGs of the College received during the
competition period which ran from 20 to 27 February 2012.
Dr Yip's first impression of the website was its beautiful
layout and ease of navigation. She explained that "the idea
and the concept of the website is a good one".
Fellows, Trainees and IMGs of the College entered the
competition, which asked website users what they think of the new
College website, launched on 23 February 2012.
The general consensus on the website was overwhelmingly
positive. Many Fellows, Trainees and IMGs expressed their
satisfaction with the striking new design, the personalised My Page
and the user-friendly information structure.
One Fellow from NSW said that, "the new website is more
intuitive than previous versions," praising the site as,
"aesthetically pleasing and easy to navigate".
Trainees in particular found the My Page a significant
improvement, noting that it brings the College website up to
standard on the current trend for social networking
Trainees also cited the new-look My Page as their favourite
feature of the new site, and described the ability to find training
materials in one place to be a significant improvement.
The College is seeking to continuously improve the new site,
which contains features such as discussion forums, blogs, a
personalised My Page and a News Feed which streams relevant
information based on user preferences.
Guidance on the website can be found under College
resources where a series of video user guides explain the key
features of the new website.
We would like to invite all Fellows, Trainees and IMGs of the
College to log on to the new website and let us know what you
think. If you have any comments, please fill out a website
