PRESIDENTS OF HSANZ
CARL DE GRUCHY ORATORS
Carl de Gruchy trained in medicine at the University of Melbourne and was appointed University of Melbourne Professor of Medicine at St Vincent's Hospital in 1962, continuing in the position until 1970. He was a pioneer in Australian and New Zealand haematology and was instrumental in its development from a fledgling discipline into one which is now a major clinical and laboratory based specialty. The Carl de Gruchy Oration was established in his honour.
ROBERT PITNEY TRAVELLING FELLOWSHIP
The Robert Pitney Travelling Fellowship is awarded to a distinguished Australian or New Zealand Haematologist to lecture around Australia and New Zealand for a maximum of two years. It provides an opportunity to educate haematologists and trainees in a specific area of expertise, in addition to establishing a collegial relationship with advanced trainees in the discipline.
