This year Emeritus Professor John Murtagh AM was recognised with the AMA’s highest honour - the AMA Gold Medal. When the award was presented at the AMA National Conference in Canberra, the former AMA President, Dr Michael Gannon said “Professor Murtagh’s contribution to medicine and general practice as both a doctor in educator in Australia is incomparable.”

“He is the highly acclaimed author of several internationally adopted medical textbooks, including John Murtagh’s General Practice, which is now in its sixth edition, and has been translated into 13 languages since it was first published in 1994.” 

Professor Murtagh "defined the nature and content of general practice" and John Murtagh's General Practice book has been the benchmark for a generation of doctors.
