|The RACGP has published guidelines|
for GPs to consult on FGCS
A ground-breaking study of Australian general practitioners has found that of those who saw patients requesting female genital cosmetic surgery (FGCS), around a third reported seeing patients younger than 18 years.
The large online survey, the first of its kind, was conducted jointly by University of Melbourne and Monash University researchers. The survey quizzed 443 GPs about their knowledge, attitudes and practice in managing patients who asked about the surgery and found many were ill-equipped to advise on it.

The human gut and its microorganisms are attracting worldwide attention in scientific and clinical circles, and curiosity in the wider public. A Monash University PhD project that has helped develop techniques to measure intestinal gases as a byproduct of these microorganisms will give valuable insights into changes occurring with our gut bacteria in health and disease.
|Professor Zimmet giving a talk to CCS's|
medical students in March 2016. The day
had extensive workshops in diabetes
diagnosis, treatments and co-morbidities
Paul has a lifelong interest in diabetes, starting with his PhD. He was also a pioneer in the epidemiology of diabetes, being the first WHO appointment invited to survey various Pacific island nation populations. In 1984, he founded the International Diabetes Institute which merged with the Baker Institute in 2008, becoming the Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute. Paul’s research predicted and has charted the evolving global type 2 diabetes epidemic. In 1999, he designed and led the team that undertook the first national diabetes and lifestyle study, AusDiab.
