Medical Deans of Australia and New Zealand announced the appointment of its new Executive Committee under the leadership of the new President, Professor Nicholas Glasgow from the ANU Medical School.
The Executive Committee was appointed by members at the recent Annual General Meeting in Canberra and will serve for two years.
