University of Sydney Deans visit Canada

28 May 2015

This past February, the Dean of Medicine, Professor Bruce Robinson, and the Dean of Dentistry, Professor Chris Peck, visited Canada and met with research partners as well as hosted information seminars in Toronto and Vancouver. Each University of Sydney Dean spoke about his respective faculty and about the popular programs offered, the Sydney MD and the Sydney DMD. Both Deans were available for a question-and-answer period following the sessions.
OzTREKK is an official international agent for the University of Sydney, and helped arrange presentations in both cities. These were very well attended by prospective students, parents and alumni. The Toronto event, held downtown at the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel, saw students travelling from as far as London, Ontario. The Vancouver event at the Westin Bayshore also attracted a number of students from Vancouver and surrounding area. Students and parents were very appreciative of the opportunity to meet the Deans of both faculties, and the Deans were equally pleased to meet a number of excellent students on their visit and plan to return to Canada to host similar events in the near future.
The University of Sydney is always pleased that a number of students from North America apply for and enrol in the Sydney MD and the Sydney DMD degrees on a yearly basis. Both faculties have excellent teaching staff and state-of-the-art facilities which help to prepare Canadian students to excel in their professions.
A big thank you is sent out to both Professor Bruce Robinson and to Professor Chris Peck for coming to Canada to speak to prospective students. And, of course, thank you to everyone who came out to enjoy the presentations!
