Student Commendations | November 2019
We want to recognise and celebrate our student doctors, on clinical placements and within the School of Medicine. We often hear about excellence, and commendation forms are the formal system to record these instances, and just as importantly, to provide positive feedback to hard working individuals and organisations.
