NSW Prevocational Training Awards

The Geoff Marel Award

In 1999 the Postgraduate Medical Council sought to recognise the significant work of the late Associate Professor Geoff Marel through an annual award. This prestigious award has been continued by HETI in memory of Associate Professor Geoff Marel. This award recognises the work of a DPET, Term Supervisor or Clinical Educator who has made substantial contributions to the education and support of prevocational trainees.

The Judy Muller Award

In 2020, the JMO  Manager Award was changed to the Judy Muller Award in recognition of the longstanding  contribution for over 35 years of Ms Judy Muller. This award recognises the work of a JMO Manager or Administrator who has made substantial contributions to the education and support of prevocational trainees.

The JMO of the Year Award

This award recognises the work of a JMO who has made substantial contributions to the education and support of prevocational trainees.

Nominations can be made by JMOs in their first and second postgraduate years for both the Geoff Marel Award and the Judy Muller Award.  Nominations can be made by any prevocational stakeholder for the JMO of the Year Award.

The winners of The Geoff Marel Award and The JMO of the Year Award will both be put  forward  as NSW nominations for the Confederation of Postgraduate Medical Education Councils (CPMEC) Australia & New Zealand.
