Media_Release_GP_Synergy_RACGP_Awards_22.1.14For the fifth consecutive year, a GP Synergy registrar has received an award for outstanding achievement in the Royal Australian College of General Practitioner (RACGP) fellowship exams.

GP Synergy general pathway registrar Dr Abigail Franklin has been named the winner of the 2013 Iris and Edward Gawthorn Award for achieving the highest score in the circulatory and respiratory components of the RACGP fellowship exam in Australia.

This is the second time in three years that this award has been won by a GP Synergy registrar, with Dr Edwina Pritchard winning the award in 2011.

Dr Abigail Franklin joins several other high achieving GP Synergy registrars including Drs Aishah Moore, Cheryl Cheong, Julia Menzies and John Cass-Verco who were awarded the Tony Buhagiar Memorial Medal for receiving the highest OSCE score in their exam cohort in NSW & ACT in 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2009 respectively.

“We warmly congratulate Abigail on her significant and hard earned achievement,” says GP Synergy’s Director of Training, Dr Rosa Canalese.
