Steuart Henderson Award

Awarded to a fellow who has demonstrated excellence and provided outstanding contribution, scholarship, and mentorship to medical education in the field of anaesthesia and/or pain medicine.

The award is named after Dr Steuart Henderson who served as an ANZCA councillor from 1992 to 2004, working particularly in education and training and as assessor. He also served for 12 years as a member of the Panel of Examiners and has had a long-standing interest in the applications of simulation to training and professional development. He was instrumental in establishing New Zealand’s first simulation-based clinical training centre in New Zealand.

The award recognises the profile of educators within the college and honours Dr Henderson for his past efforts and contribution to medical education.
