Congratulations to all Medical School graduates and the class of 2017 admitted to the degree of Doctor of Medicine and Surgery (MChD) at the ceremony held at Llewellyn Hall on 13th December.
Congratulations also to Catherine Settle who received her Doctor of Philosophy at the same ceremony, thesis title Democratising Health Policy with Deliberative Mini-Publics: Responsibilities, Pathologies, and Paradoxes.
ANU Vice-Chancellor Professor Brian Schmidt AC congratulated the students on their graduation and wished them well for the future.
"Today's graduations represent the culmination of many years hard work for our graduating students," Professor Schmidt said.
"Our new graduates will leave ANU confident that their qualifications are equal to the best in the world and they are among the world's most employable graduates.
"They should rightly be very proud of their achievements and on behalf of the whole University, I offer my best wishes for the future."
The Vice-Chancellor also added "it was great to mingle with all of you after the ceremonies, to meet your families and friends and to wish you well in your future endeavours. For many of us, graduation is easily the highlight of the University year. It gives us a chance to take time out of our busy schedules and remember why we are here. So well done to each of you."
At the College of Medicine and Health ceremony two distinguished leaders were given honorary doctorates. ANU was pleased to honour Professor Bertil Andersson for his exceptional contributions to science and Professor Matthias Hentze MD for his contribution to science.
