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
