The President’s Medal is awarded to a person who has made a major, specific and substantial service to the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand.
We are delighted to announce that the President’s Medal has been awarded at this year’s AGM, on 7 August 2021, to Professor Michael Feneley in recognition of his service as Clinical Practice advisor and most recently through the current MBS review and its implementation.
The current MBS review has involved numerous meetings, written work, and communications on behalf of the Society and its members with government. This work has been extremely important to ensuring modifications and updates to the MBS for cardiology related items were made to allow best clinical practice and best outcomes for patients while recognizing the work of clinicians.
Prof Feneley has been the knowledgeable advocate for clinicians and patients with the Government and worked on behalf of the society to ensure the best outcomes for over 20 years as Clinical Practice Advisor. His vast experience and commitment to advise on these matters while the MBS changes are being implemented is of immeasurable importance to the Society and its Members.
