The Ron Rosanove Award provides financial support to 10 medical students each year who are experiencing financial difficulties or other hardships that may prevent them from continuing or dedicating themselves fully to their studies.

Dr Rosanove and his family established the Ron Rosanove Award in 2014 through a generous donation to the Melbourne Medical School, recognising the importance receiving a Commonwealth Scholarship made during his own studies.

A number of past and current Ron Rosanove Award recipients joined for the event, greatly enjoying the opportunity to hear from Ron about his studies and career and the great satisfaction he has gained from assisting the next generation of medical students to thrive without financial barriers.
