2019 Outstanding Alumnus Award Winner: Dr Barry Kirby
Dr Barry Kirby AO was 40 years old and working as a carpenter in Papua New Guinea (PNG) when he witnessed a traumatic incident that resulted in the death of a woman in labour. It changed the course of his career. In that moment he decided PNG needed doctors more than carpenters. He enrolled in a Bachelor of Biomedical Science at Griffith University, which set him on the path to becoming a doctor. Now, he’s a rural GP in PNG, dedicated to saving women’s lives.
Bachelor of Biomedical Science
'I really loved the Biomedical Science program as it is so hands-on and immersive in the anatomy environment. I am a very visual person in my learning style, so it's great that we had so much practical experience which helped in really embedding the information'.
