The scholarship is available to fellows within five years of their original qualification and advanced trainees enrolled in a research higher degree at the University of Melbourne.
ANZCA staff education award
The Joan Sheales Staff Education Award is intended to assist an ANZCA staff member to attend an appropriate local or international educational meeting, conference, seminar, course or similar educational event.
The award was funded by a generous donation made by Professor Barry Baker in 2014 in honour of past ANZCA Chief Executive Officer Ms Joan Sheales, and provides a small grant to be available every second year to help an ANZCA staff member develop their professional capacity to support the College’s delivery of high-quality training and education in the specialties.
2018: Hannah Sinclair, ANZCA membership manager, was the recipient of the award in 2018. Her project was to undertake a study tour to visit the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) to learn more about the services they provide, and how they deliver, support, and engage with members.
2016: Monica Cronin, curator of the Geoffrey Kaye Museum of Anaesthetic History, was the inaugural recipient of the Joan Sheales staff education award. In 2017, Monica attended the International Symposium on the History of Anaesthesia in Boston, to understand the ways in which other heritage organisations of a similar nature are engaging with their core community, and learn about innovative practices which can then be incorporated into the ANZCA Museum.
