Royal North Shore celebrateS the opening of the Tom Reeve Academic Surgical Clinic The clinic was named in honour of Professor Tom Reeve who was the inaugural Professor of Surgery at RNSH and a previous President of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.

Under his leadership, Royal North Shore developed into a centre of surgical, educational and research excellence. The purpose of the clinic is to acknowledge and build upon the foundations of academic surgery that Tom Reeve created on the campus, and to provide opportunities for surgical outcomes research and clinical trials in a supportive academic environment.

Approximately 100 people attended the opening with one previous fellow in the Tom Reeve unit sending a video message which was played on the day. “The development of the clinic demonstrates a changing interest and is a green light for the future,” Tom said. “For those who wish to engage with the clinic it provides a great place to explore interests and

ideas within a reservoir of strong academic advice. “The road to success will be academically testing but all who interact with the clinic will have a great experience. They will also have the fairly onerous task of

applying for funding.” The academic clinic is a

collaborative initiative between the NSLHD, the Division of Surgery and the RNSH SERT Institute.
