Rose-Hunt Award: Agent of social change

Certain Australians will likely always be synonymous with their profession – Don Bradman and cricket, Banjo Paterson and poetry, Cate Blanchett and acting. When people think about who is associated with general practice, especially in Western Australia, few could look past Emeritus Professor Max Kamien, an RACGP Life Fellow who has dedicated more than fi ve decades to Australian and international medicine. Dr Kamien’s lifelong devotion to the general practice profession, and his passion for medical education and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health are just some of the reasons he was awarded the RACGP’s 2015 Rose-Hunt Award. But this accolade was far from his first.
