The Northern Clinical School of the Sydney Medical School recently celebrated it’s Diamond Jubilee marking 75 years since the first students commenced on March 15th 1948.
The school has a dedicated team of professional staff who support nearly 250 students undertaking the University of Sydney’s four year Doctor of Medicine program as well as over 100 higher degree research students.
In addition to providing teaching, the academic staff of the Northern Clinical School are involved in world-leading research which is supported by millions of dollars in competitive grant funding each year.
Head of the Northern Clinical School Associate Professor Margaret Schnitzler said she is proud of the amazing work done by clinicians and researchers at the clinical school, including several hundred unpaid affiliates who teach in the medical program.
“It is a genuine privilege to educate the doctors of the future and to know that we are contributing to delivering high quality healthcare to people in northern Sydney and the wider community,” she said.
To celebrate the 75th anniversary, RNSH archivist Cate Storey (pictured on front cover) held an exhibition of the hospital’s archives featuring many Northern Clinical School documents since its inception.
