Congratulations, Allison Thomas and Dawn Sherwood.


The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists

19 September 2022

Last week, the two RANZCOG FSEP Clinical Educators achieved the milestone of delivering 300 face-to-face lectures.

Most of the lectures have lasted for more than 6 hours and been delivered across Australia and New Zealand, and as far afield as Ireland and Fiji.

Allison, who commenced with FSEP in 2007, and Dawn, who started in 2010, have presented to more than 13,000 participants between them.

Both are highly skilled midwifes, with outstanding communication skills, and above all, a passion for improving outcomes.

They are a credit to RANZCOG, themselves and to midwives everywhere.
