Cup runneth over: A new crop of 171 new MBChB graduands celebrated in the Barnard Fuller quad yesterday.

Trust me, I'm a doctor

Officially, there may have been grape juice and not champers on offer in the Barnard Fuller quad this year, but there was plenty of sparkle among the crop of 171 new medical doctors when the health sciences results were announced on 1 December.

Tricia Pickard won the MBChB University Gold Medal for the most distinguished MBChB student graduating with honours.

Nisha Jacob was awarded the Forman Prize for the student who made a special contribution to student affairs.

BSc Occupational Therapy will graduate 48 students (one with distinction); BSc Physiotherapy 57 (two with distinction); Speech-Language Pathology 15 (one with distinction); and BSc Audiology 18.

This is the second year that the faculty has announced Gold Medal winners in Health & Rehabilitation Sciences. These students must achieve at least an overall percentage of 75% through all years of study.

Krishen Samuels won the Speech-Language Pathology Gold Medal, Ashleigh Hansen won the Physiotherapy Gold Medal, and Julia Smyth won the Occupational Therapy Gold Medal. A Gold Medal was not awarded for audiology.
