Order of Malta Australia


Recognising Excellence in Ethics and Philosophical Studies in Medicine


Every year, Members of the Order in WA sponsor prizes at the University of Notre Dame’s Freemantle School of Medicine. The Awards recognise the School’s highest achieving students

The 2015 Academic Year Prize Giving Ceremony was held on Wednesday 9th March and Member of the Order, Hon. Kevin Hammond, presented The Order of Malta Prize for Philosophical Studies in Medicine and The Order of Malta Prize for Ethical Studies in Medicine.

Congratulations to Charlotte Woollard, who received the award for Philosophical Studies and Mia Zic, who received the award for Ethical Studies.


Mia’s award was collected by her mother, Ines, as Mia is currently located at the Rural Clinical School in Albany and was unable to attend the Ceremony.
