Meet the Deans for ANZ

December 7, 2023

1 hr.

Professor Paddy Dewan, OUM’s Dean for ANZ, joined the University in 2021 as a Clinical Professor and Clinical Coordinator, helping students arrange their clinical rotations in Victoria. While continuing to secure clinical placements for students in his new role as Dean, he has also begun a new weekly surgical webinar for students while continuing his busy paediatric urology practice, and traveling extensively with his non-profit organization, Kind Cuts for Kids, which provides specialty medical care to children in developing countries and others worldwide.

Dr. David Mountford joined OUM as Associate Dean for ANZ in 2021, bringing with him a wealth of experience designing programming for Australian Medical Council Examination preparation. Those specialty skills earned him the assignment to reintroduce the OSCEs to OUM — a student’s final medical school assessment — launching during the challenging environment brought on by the global pandemic. While his early clinical interest was in Spinal Injury Medicine and Cardiology, Dr. Mountford’s concern for Australia’s shortage of GPs led him to General Practice.

Join us for the final webinar of 2023 and hear the role Drs. Dewan and Mountford play in preparing physicians to practice in Australia and New Zealand.
