Bay doctors celebrated by students at special ceremony

SIX medical students from the University of Queensland Rural Clinical School have presented six doctors with 2020 teaching awards in a ceremony at the Hervey Bay Hospital.

A small number of students and teachers came together to celebrate the following winners:

Year 3 Teaching Awards

  • 1st Joanna Longley
  • 2nd Shams Family
  • 3rd Bjorn Christiansen

Year 4 Teaching Awards

  • 1st Joanna Longley
  • 2nd Himali Ihalagama
  • 3rd James Newman

Year 3 and 4 teaching award winner Dr Joanna Longley was grateful that the students enjoyed the tutorials as much as she has enjoyed teaching them.

As a staff specialist intensivist at the Hervey Bay Hospital, Dr Longley teaches Year 4 medical students who are rotating through their ICU term, supervises Year 1 elective placement students, and tutors Year 3 and 4 students on clinical reasoning.

“The students are so enthusiastic and engaged that it is a pleasure to work with them and I am sure they will become dedicated, caring clinicians,” Dr Longley said.

This year, 27 students completed the clinical training component of UQ’s Doctor of Medicine program at UQRCS Hervey Bay.
