Excellence awarded at the AMA (WA) Annual Gala Dinner
WA Police Commissioner Dr Karl O’Callaghan has been recognised by the Australian Medical Association (WA), receiving the Associations’ top non-medical award at the weekend.
Dr O’Callaghan, who was appointed as Commissioner in 2004, was presented with the AMA (WA)’s President’s Award at the Association’s Gala Dinner on Saturday night, capping off a remarkable career.
Also recognised at the Gala Dinner was beloved General Practitioner Dr Steve Wilson, who was presented with the AMA (WA)’s top medical recognition, the Hippocrates Award.
Dr Khorshid said Dr Wilson had always put the patient first and had given himself to medicine over many years.
“Dr Wilson is the role model of an ‘old fashioned GP’. Many doctors can learn a great deal from his example of patient care and quality medicine,” Dr Khorshid said.
The Dr Camille Michener Legacy Award, presented to WA’s top Junior Doctor, was awarded to Dr Sarah Newman.
The Camille Michener Legacy Award recognises the significant and outstanding contribution by Junior Doctors in the areas of teaching and education, leadership and advocacy; and the well-being of doctors along with community service.
