FOR OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION TO STUDENT LEARNING
Dr Janelle Hamilton led a team that maintained clinical education for junior medical students during the 2020 COVID pandemic. She developed innovative online learning and on-campus teaching intensives to maintain students’ motivation and academic standards. Janelle’s responsive and encouraging approach has provided students with the support and skills they need to achieve at the highest levels, and to be well prepared for the next phase of their degree and their future careers.
“I want them to understand that as part of how to be a doctor is that we want them to be altruistic,
to be compassionate practitioners in the future.”Dr Janelle Hamilton
“They come in and you teach the skills in a tutorial room, but you can actually watch the students learn. So that’s the sort of thing that got me into teaching and I’ve loved it since then.”Dr Janelle Hamilton
