Baccalauresters get a big post-Christmas cheer
When the holidays are finally over, it’s a perfect time to celebrate what you have, and how you have it.
That’s what happened for two post-graduate post-doctoral fellows at the University of Sydney.
One, Michael F. Williams, is the first post-doc to be awarded a Baccalamurra Medal (an honorary doctorate), and the other, Jocelyn B. Moore, is awarded the Baccawatt award.
Both received their Baccas from the Australian National University.
“It’s a great opportunity to showcase the work we’ve done in our field and to demonstrate the high level of quality and the commitment we’ve shown to it,” said Williams, who will receive the medal this weekend.
The two postdocs were honoured at the post ceremony at the university’s headquarters in Hobart. “
I’ve been to a few ceremonies and I’ve heard a lot of stories, but this one really means something to me.”

“The moment I saw the medal, I knew I had to take the award,” Williams said.
“When you see the medal in your hands, it makes you feel good.
Both post-docs were part of the Australian College of Surgeons (ACOSS) post-graduates and have also been recognised by other colleges and universities around the world. “
And I’ve got the Baca to prove it.”

The Bacca Awards were recognised with an open letter to both post-seniors.

“In the next few years, we hope to have you both working in the medical field, in our own way, as well as in your community.”
