Professor Philip Walker RACS Vascular Surgery Research Scholarship 2020

This Scholarship was established to encourage research in an area related to vascular surgical disease.

Professor Philip Walker was a Vascular Surgeon, educated in Sydney (Royal Prince Alfred Hospital), Capetown (Groote Schurr) and Stanford University. He moved to Brisbane in 1992 and having held various academic positions from that time was appointed Professor of Clinical Surgery and Head, Academic Discipline of Surgery at the University of Queensland, School of Medicine, in 2011. He was a pre-eminent teacher, researcher and clinically active hands-on-surgeon who served as an examiner in Vascular Surgery for RACS. He died as a result of illness whilst still very active in all of his areas of interest.

This scholarship is funded from a generous donation from Professor Walker himself.
