The inaugural Marie Bashir Address was held in 2005, and quickly established itself as a premier academic and social event on the Sydney University Medical Society’s (SUMS) annual calendar.
Inspired by one of the most accomplished alumna from the University of Sydney Medical Program, Professor The Honourable Dame Marie Bashir AD CVO, this event is certainly one of the most significant and anticipated for staff and students alike. This event is more than just a celebration of the contributions of Women in Medicine; it’s an opportunity to highlight the changes and progress that members of the health community, particularly women, have made and continue to make.
Amongst the major events within the SUMS’s calendar, the Annual Marie Bashir Address provides a unique opportunity for staff, students, alumna and other guests to network and share knowledge.
The Marie Bashir Address invites you to a distinguished three-course meal seated alongside doctors and peers, whilst engaging with the keynote speaker elected to inspire all those who attend.
Previous speakers have included Professor Bashir, Professor Ingrid Scheffer AO and Dr. Fiona Wood AM.
Whilst it is an event to highlight the accomplishments of Women in Medicine, it is encouraged that all medical students, staff and guests attend regardless of gender.
