Reunion

Class of 1982

The Class of 1982 30th year reunion was a great success, held on campus at University House in March 2012.

We decided to get in early rather than wait for the (socially) crowded end of the year. Nick Gelber, Jeremy Ryan and Arlene Murkies spent months contacting alumni and organising the event and about 100 graduates attended. Our year had reunited previously at 15 years in 1997 and 20 years in 2002, and for many this was the first time in ten or more years to catch up with old friends and colleagues. At this stage in our careers, and in our lives, we were delighted to chat about families, and fond memories of student and resident days. Michael Rasmussen (St. Vincent's), Ian Fraser (RMH) and Mark Frydenberg (Austin) regaled the audience with amusing anecdotes from student days at each of the clinical schools. All who attended enjoyed the evening - too brief a time to talk to everyone! - and vowed to come to the next reunion in five or ten years' time.

The organisers wish to thank all who attended, and especially thank Jan Powell from the Alumni office for her help in contacting fellow graduates, and with the excellent venue.
