"I watched Bill present and he did extremely well, to the point that the judges were concerned he was not, in fact, a medical student," said Mr Paul Cashin, Upper Gastrointestinal and Hepatobiliary surgeon and Monash University Adjunct Senior Lecturer. 

Also recognised was recent Registrar Josh Hammershlag received the award for best registrar clinical research presentation (The RC Bennett Prize) for his work on creating an iPhone App for measuring degree of hip flexion to monitor orthopaedic recovery after hip surgery.
"This was a really novel way of easily quantifying improvement and typical of the e-Generation to use an App to solve a problem," added Mr Cashin.
"Awards were given in various categories and the quality of the presentations was very strong," said Mr Cashin.
"Well done to both as they did Monash Health, Monash University and particularly Monash Surgery proud."
