Well regarded Doctor inspires the next generation


Bass Coast Health (BCH) is proud to welcome well known and much-loved General Medicine Doctor, Megan Scott, to a new role: that of BCH Clinical Dean.

Megan will provide guidance to our 5D Medical Students, not only to help them provide a high-level service to our community, but also to ensure they have a positive experience with us so they may consider joining our team on an ongoing basis.

She will also be a conduit between BCH and Monash University, where our students are studying.

“As a rural medical graduate myself, I’m passionate about ensuring the next generation of Doctors experience the diverse opportunities offered by working in rural medicine,” she said.

The 5D students rotate throughout our Acute, Sub-Acute and Emergency Department, and also undertake specialised training.

Megan took over as Clinical Dean from Associate Professor Bruce Waxman, who resigned last December after serving the BCH community since 2014.

Bruce will remain as a mentor for Megan and our Medical Supervisors in an honorary appointment at BCH. 

BCH CEO Jan Child said the healthcare service, and the community, was fortunate to have medical practitioners of such quality providing healthcare locally.

“Megan is an experienced Doctor with an affinity for the Bass Coast community and so is well placed to offer our Medical Students the most informative and beneficial experience,” she said.

“We’re also grateful to Bruce for the exemplary service he has given BCH and the community, and look forward to his continued involvement with us.”
