Professor Jane Gunn appointed Dean – Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences

Professor Jane Gunn

We congratulate Professor Jane Gunn on her appointment to Dean, Faculty of Medicine Dentistry and Health Sciences (MDHS), University of Melbourne. Sharing from my personal experiences, Jane was instrumental in shaping my own medical career. I fondly recall a pivotal moment some year ago, when Jane stated ‘I have an idea of what I can get you involved with …. you wanna join me on this new research team I’m establishing?” The rest is history!

Jane has become the first female Dean since female students first admitted to study medicine 1887.

Professor Jane Gunn founded the University of Melbourne General Practice and Primary Care- based Research Network ( VicReN), with the support of Professor Doris Young of which I am proud to be an inaugural founding member.

Through this research network and Professor Gunn’s tireless efforts,  the value general practice brings to the lives of millions of people, is being translated  into evidence.

Health reform needs this from our sector and now is being systematically produced by passionate primary care researchers Professor Gunn and others inspire.
