Medical Alumni

Stay connected with your former classmates for life

Flinders School of Medicine has over 2500 medical alumni who are making a positive impact on the health of communities locally, nationally and throughout the world, and we are keen to ensure you remain connected long after graduation.

Our graduates become agents of change in many fields of health and medical research, with many continuing to be engaged with our School throughout their working life.

We are proud of you, our alumni, and over the next few months will be further developing this site to assist in further stimulating connections, engagement and providing you with the latest news about your former peers and the School of Medicine.

CELEBRATING 40 YEARS 1974 - 2014

The Flinders School of Medicine was proud to celebrate 40 years in 2014.

Our School was created in 1974 as part of Australia’s first purpose-built academic medical centre focused on the southern suburbs of Adelaide. The siting of Flinders University in the south provided the springboard for a major hospital development associated with a new medical school.

We have grown to create a transcontinental academic health science network, collocated with health and medical facilities across the North-South corridor of Australia.

 

Local Wellbing. Global Impact

Since the first class of 64 students enrolled in 1974 we have come a long way, however our vision has remained the same – to contribute to local wellbeing and to make a global impact. The Flinders curriculum has always been focused on providing students with an understanding of social accountability in medicine and the School’s graduates have the leadership qualities, knowledge and skills that enable them to practice throughout the world – particularly in underserved communities.

Inspiring Achievement

Our School has produced hundreds of inspirational alumni – many of whom go about their day-to-day lives achieving great things, yet not seeking any recognition for this fact.

It is worth mentioning however, some of those who hold senior positions in the public sphere. These include:

  • the current Chief Medical Officer, Professor Chris Baggoley;
  • the CEO for Medical Deans Australia and New Zealand, Professor Judy Searle;
  • the Executive Director of the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI), Professor Steven Wesselingh; and
  • the current Director of the Australian War Memorial, and former national AMA President and Leader of the Opposition in the Australian Parliament, Dr Brendan Nelson.
