Dr Rosanna Capolingua

An Australian Legend, Associate Professor Rosanna Capolingua has sat on more boards than you can count and truly embodies the phrase “well-rounded”. Rosanna was AMA’s president 2007-2009 and has also been a member of the Executive of the Federal AMA, Chair of Federal AMA’s Ethics and Medico-Legal Committee, and currently sits on multiple health boards at a state and national level. Amongst all of these roles, she is also Practice Principle at Floreat Medical, a General Practice in WA near the area where Rosanna grew up. We are incredibly excited to welcome her to Convention 2018 where we hope her achievements and career will inspire the rest of WA’s medical students, as they have done for us.
