San ENT surgeon and portrait artist recieves national recognition

San surgeon Dr Gillian Dunlop has been recognised for excellence in her two concurrent yet diverse careers as an ENT surgeon and a national portrait artist.

Dr Dunlop has been presented with the Graham Coupland Memorial Medal from the Royal Australian College of Surgeons.

Dr Dunlop had been invited to deliver the Graham Coupland Oration at the Art Gallery of NSW and spoke on the topic of “Should your daughter be an artist?”. During this lecture Dr Dunlop discussed the importance of financial independence for professional women in the Arts.

The Graham Coupland Oration and Medal were created in 1983 to honour the memory of gastric and paediatric surgeon Associate Professor Graham Coupland who was the Supervisor of Surgery for the University of Sydney and taught at Royal North Shore Hospital.

As an artist Dr Dunlop’s commissions have included Dame Quentin Bryce, Dame Marie Bashir and most recently Chief Justice John Pascoe of the Family Law Court of Australia.

The medal was awarded by NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard.
