John Corboy medalist’s commitment to help others
Since 2010, the College has awarded the John Corboy Medal in recognition of exceptional service of surgical Trainees. The medal is named after Dr John Corboy, former Chair of RACS Trainee Association, who gave generously to his peers and who offered energetic service for surgery despite facing personal adversity.
On the recommendation of the Trainee’s Association, the medal is awarded annually to a Trainee who demonstrates the characteristics for which Dr Corboy was admired. The award is made to a candidate for one or more of the following qualities: outstanding leadership, selfless service, tenacity, and service to Trainees of the College.
RACS is proud to announce the 2022 John Corboy Medal is awarded to Dr Amanda Nikolic, who has worked tirelessly to help surgical Trainees.
