March Council Week


The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists

24 March 2023

At the March Council Week BBQ, the College paid tribute to two Fellows who have contributed so much to the College and Women’s Health – Professor Caroline de Costa and Associate Professor Ian Pettigrew.

The College also paid tribute to Dr Arthur Wilson, recognised as one of the leaders in O&G & a founder of what ultimately has become RANZCOG. We were joined by two of his grandchildren – David and Rod Kemp – who presented the College with an illustrated history of the family of Arthur and a compilation of documents and photographs relating to Arthur’s service in the Great War 1914-18. (Check out a video from David and Rod Kemp below).
