Inspiration Evening


Inspiration Evening is an evening full of astounding stories from exceptional doctors in different areas of medicine who aim to motivate the students and junior healthcare professionals to achieve their career goals, nurturing their passion for medicine.

WUMSS are proud to introduce our incredible doctors sharing their stories this year:

💡Professor Mark Smithers - Upper GI Surgeon. Coming all the way from the Sunshine State, he is one of Australia's leading surgeons in the field of oesophageal and gastric tumours, cutaneous melanoma and retroperitoneal sarcomas. With his extensive research and meritorious service to surgery he has recently been awarded the Hugh Devine medal from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.

💡Professor Wilfred Yeo - Specialist General Physician. He's a Director, Foundation Professor, Clinician and one of our favourite Educators. With his doppelgänger making appearances in Med Revue year after year, we finally get a performance from the man himself.

💡Dr Angela Jay - Senior Obstetrics Registrar. This young doctor has overcome unimaginable trauma and adversity which has led her to an inspiring advocacy for white ribbon Australia. Her physical and emotional strength and determination is astounding.

The 2018 WUMSS Academic and Clinician of the Year, as voted by the students, will also be announced and awarded on the night.
