Anzac Day is a time of remembrance of the contribution of those men and women of Aotearoa New Zealand and Australia who served in military operations and for the many who lost their lives.
Anzac Day is also about respect: respecting those who served and paid the ultimate sacrifice, respecting the veterans who walk amongst us today, and respecting those who continue to serve in today’s Navy, Army and Air Force.
A number of the College’s current and past Members have either served for or continue to work within our various defence forces and departments across Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand.
The College is proud of their ongoing Medical Leadership, clinical governance and the vital roles they play across our communities to ensure the delivery of quality and safe healthcare.
RACMA also acknowledges the critical role Medical Leadership has and continues to play in delivering healthcare to our men and women in combat as well as returned service personnel. ANZAC values include such human qualities as courage, mateship, fairness, persistence, integrity, initiative, endurance, determination, ingenuity and respect. Values and qualities which are also key to effective Medical Leadership.
Today we offer thanks to the Australian and Aotearoa New Zealand Defence Force personnel, particularly those of whom are our Members, and also their families and all veterans, young and old. In doing this, we also recognise the ongoing impact of military service on the lives of veterans and their families.
